Mobility Lab is a Research and Communications Center
Mobility Lab is an initiative from Arlington County Commuter Services to further the effectiveness of Transportation Demand Management (TDM) through research, collaboration, and innovation.
A human population efficiently able to navigate their individual movements between home, work, and all of life’s destinations.
Mobility Lab nurtures innovations to a fundamental requirement of human life: transportation. It is a place and an internet research entity that communicates best practices in the field of TDM, using research findings to educate and encourage continuous improvement for moving people instead of cars in more healthy, economical, and sustainable ways.
Mobility Lab work focuses on the professional discipline called Transportation Demand Management by conducting research studies, providing data analysis, and statistical information sharing. TDM in Arlington, Virginia is about making individuals aware of their transportation options, including route, time of travel and mode. In the broadest sense, TDM is defined as providing travelers with effective choices to improve travel, decrease traffic congestion, improve system efficiency, reliability, and improve quality of life.
What we do
Since our founding in 2010, we have released over 60 original studies on travel behavior and TDM strategies and we have collaborated on research projects with several universities and local and regional Federal agencies.
Mobility Lab’s published research is available to readers and to the public on an annual basis with signature projects uploaded to the website for comment and review. Research reports and articles contain findings pertaining to customer satisfaction of transportation systems and services, barriers to using public transportation and user preference to receiving digital information on mobile devices.
We believe that the best way to make sure transportation innovations benefit everyone is through collaboration. Here’s how we bring people together.
The Mobility Lab team greatly appreciates your feedback.
