New Orleans Begins Planning for the Future of Mobility
We're a bit later than normal on this news, but the New Orleans Regional Transit Authority recently launched "a full evaluation of the city's transit system and what it needs to do to plan for the future," according to an article by Beau Evans.
The Strategic Mobility Plan "will incorporate a more holistic approach to 'mobility,'" according to Evans. "It will explore how smartphones, ride-hailing and bicycle-sharing services, 'last-mile' shuttles and multi-functional 'mobility hubs' could fit into New Orleans' public transit landscape."
The article includes more details about how the RTA is approaching the planning process—and how it intends to integrate public outreach and new technology into the process. For more info, this time from an institutional source, see a post on the RTA website that announces the kickoff of the Strategic Mobility Plan process.
