The need for innovative transportation solutions to health care and job-related destinations has never been greater. CTAA's two-day conference (June 9-10) will explore creative responses implemented by mobility management practitioners to expanding options in these areas. Attendees will hear from leaders in the health care and job development fields, engage in discussions and small-group work to identify essential criteria of responsive health care and job access solutions, and through guided design activities, take steps toward charting new avenues for their community. Part of the conference will be devoted to strategies for conveying the value of mobility management activities to community leaders.
