This page is the central location for our ongoing work on the FTA Mobility on Demand Sandbox pilot project.
Eno’s work is at the forefront of evaluating new mobility options. Through a partnership with LA Metro, King County Metro, and Sound Transit, this research aims to evaluate their Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Sandbox grant to provide first and last mile mobility on demand (MOD) pilots. Eno is reviewing the effectiveness of the pilot program, providing expert advice on ways to improve it, and crafting recommendations about whether and how to implement successful partnerships at other agencies. The series of research papers developed in conjunction with this project focus on topics such as incorporating accessibility, selecting pilot parameters, navigating the procurement process, data sharing, and fare integration.

REPORT: Mobility Lessons Learned
This paper summarizes the final analysis conducted by research teams in each region. It is framed around the fundamental questions of the pilot: how did the MOD services work, whom did they serve, and where did this service primarily take place?
REPORT: Mobility on Demand in the Los Angeles Region
This report summarizes findings from the MOD pilot in the Los Angeles Region.
REPORT: Mobility on Demand in the Puget Sound Region
This report summarizes findings from the MOD pilot in the Puget Sound Region.
REPORT: Contracting for Mobility
Contracting for Mobility is the first paper in our Mobility on Demand series. This paper covers the process that developed the contracts for the MOD Sandbox pilot projects in the Los Angeles and Puget Sound regions.
REPORT: Data on Demand
Data on Demand is the second paper in our Mobility on Demand series. This report examines the data needs that agency staff need to consider when developing a MOD agreement with private providers.
REPORT: Fare Integration for Transit
Fare Integration for Transit is the third paper in our Mobility on Demand series. This report discusses individual and collaborative efforts of public transit agencies and private companies to collect and integrate payment methods and information.
REPORT: Toward Universal Access
Toward Universal Access is the fourth paper in our Mobility on Demand series. The report discusses how the existing paratransit does not provide the same level of on-demand access and the goal of the pilot in both regions to provide equitable service to all users.
