Introduction

Mobility on demand (MOD) is a Federal Transit Administration term for “an integrated and connected multi-modal network of safe, affordable, and reliable transportation options that are available to all.” This includes modern transportation systems like ridesharing, carsharing, and bikesharing, and demand-responsive transit as well as smartphone apps and other technology. Because these tools are relatively new to transit agencies, the FTA does not yet have clear guidelines to cover all of them. The organization has developed the MOD Sandbox Program to award grants to agencies experimenting with MOD. The FTA hopes this experimentation will lead to a better understanding of the role of mobility on demand in transit operation.
