Innovative Mobility Accelerator

Overview

Innovative Mobility Accelerator

SACOG’s Innovative Mobility program builds on the success of the transportation pilot projects and lessons learned from Civic Lab Year 1, rapid change and disruption in mobility, existing investments in transit, and leverages technology to reduce vehicle miles traveled (VMT) and solve mobility challenges. One of the first initiatives to launch in this program is the Innovative Mobility Accelerator.

  • Applications are open from February 3 – 24
  • The 12-week accelerator starts early April
  • Pilot projects designed in the program will launch starting this summer

What is the Innovative Mobility Accelerator?

The Mobility Accelerator is a program for SACOG members to develop and launch pilot projects to solve transportation challenges with innovative mobility solutions. This accelerator is modeled after SACOG’s Civic Lab program which takes best practices from start-up and technology accelerators—identifying a clear challenge statement and key partners and then working to develop flexible pilot projects. Civic Lab Year 1 resulted in eight project teams,10 pilot projects across the region, over $3M in combined funding.
