IATR's Guiding Principles for Mobility Policy & Congestion Mitigation
The International Association of Transportation Regulators (IATR) has endeavored to develop principles that would form a framework for best practices to support mobility policy-making for federal, state/provincial, and local governments to achieve efficient, affordable, sustainable, resilient, and equitable multi-modal passenger transportation, while mitigating negative impacts such as congestion in the post-pandemic world.
This project includes the development of principles and best practices in the United States, Europe, and other relevant jurisdictions. Data-gathering techniques that were used for this project include, but are not limited to, the following: literature review, legislation and regulation review, workshops, focus groups, and interviews. The goal of this project was to develop a “community of practice” – or regulatory “do’s” and “don’ts” – through collaboration by and between regulators, the regulated entities, and other stakeholders. The project culminated in the issuance of “guiding principles” following two IATR workshops and a survey.
