CALSTART’s Innovative Mobility Initiative focuses on leveraging emerging transportation technologies and operating models to make the lightest-footprint modes competitive with traditional means of moving goods and people. The initiative takes a whole-system approach to design transportation networks that reduce the number of miles needed to access resources and opportunities, and shift trips to efficient, zero-emission modes.
Putting the power of new mobility in the hands of communities, especially those historically and currently underserved by traditional transportation systems.
