The mobility management approach differs from traditional transit services in several ways:
- Mobility management disaggregates service planning and markets in order to better serve individuals and the community. Traditional transit service planning aggregates demand on centralized, highly traveled routes of a transit system.
- Mobility management focuses on service diversity and a "family of transportation services" to reach a wide range of customers versus traditional transit systems that are built on the principle of unified regional service coverage. A "family of transportation services" is a wide range of travel options, services, and modes that are matched to community demographics and needs.
- Mobility management uses multiple transportation providers to offer the most efficient and effective service to all individuals. Traditional transit agencies typically use a single operator to deliver all services. Mobility management underscores the importance of service advocacy as a way to improve public transportation management and delivery. A mobility manager acts as a travel agent/service coordinator to seek the most effective means for meeting an individual’s transportation needs. Transit agencies generally focus on the direct provision of services.
