Let’s Accelerate Mobility Together

We know how we move is changing: A vehicle spends 95 percent of its time parked, millennials are leading the way with pay-per-use mobility instead of owning a car and the smartphones we carry are becoming better predictors of how we’ll travel than the cars we own or the roads we drive them on. If we plan together, we can save time, money and lives—getting 49 hours back into our days every year, $2 billion and over 200 lives in the Denver metro area.

This nonprofit organization brings together for the first time public entities, including the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT), Regional Transportation District (RTD) and the Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG) with the business community and the technology sector, including organizations like the Chamber, Arrow Electronics, IHS Markit, Panasonic and Vail Resorts, to plan for the future.

This planning effort is different: It takes into account the types of changes we are experiencing due to advancing technology and shifting values – think car sharing, mobile app consumption and ride sharing. By uniting the public and private sectors we can better plan for the mobility needs of our future workforce. It’s not about adding lanes; it’s about using technology to maximize what we have in place.

If we don’t act now, our growth and congestion could work against us when it comes to attracting tomorrow’s workforce.
