The Mobility Innovator is a year-long initiative to address mobility challenges in the Boston region through the lenses of resiliency and equity.
The project, funded by the Barr Foundation and in partnership with Sasaki, seeks to understand how to better connect communities of color and low-income communities to jobs, social networks, daily needs, and amenities by improving and augmenting existing and emerging transportation networks. It explores how to better leverage technology to identify gaps in current mobility options, including bike and pedestrian pattern analysis and public safety of mobility choices. The project also investigates how amenity-oriented development can achieve a higher share of retail, food, service, entertainment, and social trips on foot.
