ITS America ramps up MOD Alliance Efforts

The Mobility on Demand (MOD) Alliance, an initiative of the Intelligent Transportation Society of America (ITS America), is outlining its 2019 plans to coordinate and develop seamless mobility in the United States.

ITS America created the MOD Alliance to help determine what the future of mobility should look like. Its charge is to facilitate a system in which consumers can research, book and pay for daily trips – no matter what form of transportation – on one integrated platform.

To kick off this year’s activities, the MOD Alliance hosted an event on Capitol Hill yesterday featuring city, transit, and private sector leaders who talked about the benefits of mobility on demand, shared examples of existing and future MOD initiatives – including public-private partnerships – and discussed potential roles for Congress and federal agencies.

More details on the kick off in the press release.

More details on MOD can be found on MD website.
