TDM Technology Strategy: Immediate Steps & Long-Term Impact - November 2019
TDM technology is moving quickly, sometimes so quickly it is hard to figure out what to do right now. More and more organizations are realizing that positioning themselves to make the most of current and future technology is an ongoing activity – not a one-time project. For instance, microtransit provides on-demand transit routing while marketing automation platforms enable simplified activities; both require an ongoing approach. Come learn about public sector organizations that are well-positioned to leverage the benefits of emerging transportation technology, the steps they took to get there, and how you can apply their lessons to your TDM work.
