Webinar: MaaS Up America! Mobility as a Service Implementation Review and Operation

May 31, 2017
02:00 PM - 03:00 PM
National / Webinar

Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) represents a new concept of integrating various forms of transportation services (public transit, ridesharing, carsharing, bicycling, and walking) into a single system accessible on demand, matching the user with the most efficient and affordable option for their desired trip and encouraging the user to take action to adopt these options.

During the first portion of the webinar attendees will receive a brief introduction to MaaS, and look at the evolution and requirements to set up a successful MaaS ecosystem; from the perspective of both the user and service provider.  Participants will learn about the partnerships, field, and market requirements for a successful MaaS application.

The second half of the webinar will present the conceptual aspects of MaaS&T (Tool) which integrates users, services providers and system managers in a triple-win situation so that both personal mobility and urban traffic congestion are improved in a synergistic and progressive manner. Attendees will learn about a unique approach to MaaS&T development that is supported by the approach of Mobility Options Discovery and Engagement and Total Capacity.

System Performance/Freight/CMAQ Performance Measures Webinar

June 1, 2017
02:00 PM - 03:30 PM

On May 20, 2017, the FHWA final rulemaking on national performance measures will take effect, with the exception of certain portions of the rule pertaining to the measure on the percent change in CO2 emissions from 2017, generated by on-road mobile sources on the NHS (the GHG measure). While the published rule includes a GHG measure, the effective date of the portions of the final rule pertaining to that measurehas been delayed. The FHWA will be publishing a NPRM in the Federal Registerpertaining to this measure. 

This final rule, published in the Federal Register on January 18, 2017 and effective on May 20, 2017 (except for portions related to the GHG measure), sets forth measures that State Departments of Transportation (DOTs) and Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) will use to report on the following characteristics within their jurisdiction:


  • the performance of the Interstate and non-Interstate National Highway System (NHS) to carry out the National Highway Performance Program (NHPP);

  • freight movement on the Interstate system; and

  • traffic congestion and on-road mobile source emissions for the purpose of carrying out the Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement (CMAQ) Program.


This System Performance/Freight/CMAQ Performance Measures final rule, as effective on May 20, 2017, comprises six measures:

  • A measure that will assess freight movement on the Interstate by the percentage of Interstate system mileage providing for reliable truck travel time (Truck Travel Time Reliability Index).

  • A measure that will assess the CMAQ program in contributing to the attainment of national air quality standards in nonattainment and maintenance areas (total emission reductions for applicable criteria pollutants).

  • Four other measures of either system performance or traffic congestion under the CMAQ program:

  • A measure that will assess the percent of reliable person-miles traveled on the Interstate.

  • A measure that will assess the percent of reliable person-miles traveled on the non-Interstate NHS.

  • A measure that will assess annual hours of peak hour excessive delay per capita.

  • A measure that will assess modal share; specifically, the percent of non-single occupancy vehicle travel which includes travel avoided by telecommuting.
