Mobility Matters is an annual conference dedicated to transportation in Iowa. The focus of the conference is to discuss what advancements have been made in transportation agencies and programs throughout the state. It is also a platform to discuss how transportation can be enhanced by working together to identify unmet needs, understand why those needs have not been met, and develop potential solutions to improve public transportation.

 

Anyone is welcome to attend this free conference. Public transportation options affect many different demographics and it is important to have each perspective represented. The conference is especially geared toward those interested in developing partnerships between transit and community service agencies.
