The 11th Annual Mobility Workshop: Beyond Paratransit, 21st Century Mobility, sponsored by the Alameda CTC and its Paratransit Advisory and Planning Committee, was held at the Ed Roberts Campus in Berkeley on Friday, October 17, 2104. Building off of last year’s theme of keeping seniors and people with disabilities functioning with maximum independence and encouraging health and social networks, this year's workshop took a look at how to leverage new mobility options – services beyond traditional paratransit, to address the needs of a growing population of seniors and people with disabilities. Hashtag #PAPCOMobilityWorkshop was used to share thoughts, ideas and photos during the workshop.
Mobility management is gaining traction in the Bay Area and increasingly being implemented at the county level. This year’s workshop explored how new technology and innovative design will change the game, giving us the tools and technical expertise necessary to understand and plan for these exciting changes.
