Ridership and COVID-19? Learn how gaining a deeper understanding of your market through social marketing can help to plan for behavior change

Instructors: Mahmooda Khaliq Pasha, PhD and Phil Winters, CUTR

Is transit ridership or demand for commuter assistance programs (CAP) stagnating or declining in your community? What about the effects of COVID-19 on ridership? Regardless of the reach and frequency of an advertising campaign, most people do not drastically change behaviors quickly and decisively as the result of mass promotional campaigns. Changing customer needs and expectations means transit agencies and commuter assistance programs need to adapt. They must develop and apply new intervention strategies tailored to move individuals along continuum from awareness to action and subsequently to sustain ridership. This workshop will provide an overview of social marketing. Not to be confused with social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram); social marketing is the use of commercial marketing principles to achieve behavior change that is of benefit to society as a whole. In this workshop, we will introduce social marketing and the systematic process you can use to identify barriers and opportunities for achieving change in travel behaviors that benefit society through riding transit, telecommuting, bicycling, and car/vanpooling.

Social marketing has been used successfully to promote healthy behaviors for more than half a century and can be thought of as the science of increasing the acceptability of a beneficial idea (less vehicle miles traveled in single occupant vehicle), service (use of carpool/vanpool, managed lanes), product (use of ride sharing apps, bikeshare), behavior (using transit or biking), or policy (employer based incentives for employee commute strategies). One of the early important steps in the process is identifying and segmenting the target population. However, to get a better sense of who the person is that you are trying to reach, a technique that we often utilize is the creation of a persona or an archetype of the person. It is an essential tool in social marketing and builds a vivid image of the person who will be interacting with your agency or CAP. In this session, you will learn how the success of transit and CAPs rely on behavior change, understand how social marketing can be used to achieve behavior change, and apply a commonly used strategy in social marketing of developing a persona of your target audience. This workshop includes excerpts from the FDOT-sponsored Social Marketing in Transportation certificate taught by CUTR (www.commuterservices.com) taught by these instructors.

Fare Free Transit Systems: Issues and Opportunities

Moderator: Ann Joslin, CUTR
Presenters: Mariel Kirschen, Nelson/Nygaard; Brian Freeman, Indian River County MPO; and Murriah Dekle, St. Lucie County

In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, many transit systems eliminated fare collection in an effort to address safety concerns associated with driver/passenger interaction. As some precautionary measures are now being lifted, many agencies have resumed, or will soon resume, pre-Covid fare collection practices. Other agencies have begun to re-examine past fare collection policies with renewed interest in offering free fares system-wide or to customers such as youth, seniors or those who are economically disadvantaged. Although there are obvious barriers to implementation, agencies view this as a potential opportunity to enhance social equity, improve operations and boost ridership. In this session you will learn more about implementation and outcomes of free fare practices nationally and from two Florida properties with experience operating free fare systems.

The Journey Forward: Advancing Equity in Transportation Planning

Moderator: Stephanie Lewis, CUTR
Presenters: Tia Boyd, CUTR and Joshua Barber, Hillsborough TPO

This session will describe innovative processes, strategies, and tools to integrate equity into transportation planning. We will begin by introducing the Transportation Equity Toolkit – a resource to advance equity in local and regional transportation planning. This toolkit provides agency staff and community members with tools, guidance, and resources to address the transportation needs of traditionally underserved communities and move equity to the forefront of transportation planning practice. The session will then explore how to apply tools such as the Transportation Equity Audit Tool and the Transportation Equity Scorecard Tool to identify the needs of underserved communities and prioritize projects for funding that advance equity.

To provide an example of real-world applications of equity-driven practices, Hillsborough MPO staff will discuss their processes and findings from the Title VI and Nondiscrimination Plan update. To meet Title VI and Nondiscrimination Plan requirements, Hillsborough MPO staff have been developing a wide-ranging update that includes a framework for equity for the agency, documenting the history of racism in planning in Hillsborough County, a comprehensive public involvement process with the most underserved communities, and policy and process recommendations for the agency. We will discuss some of the findings from the historical analysis and the feedback from community outreach efforts. The discussion of community feedback will include challenges community members face accessing transportation, housing, planning meetings, and other community elements.

Overall, the session will explore:

Embracing the Change: Partnering with Taxi and TNC Services to Enhance Public Transportation

Moderator: Stephanie Lewis, CUTR
Presenters: Jeremy Mullings, AICP, Senior Planner/Project Director, South Florida Commuter Services (SFCS); and Victor Garcia, Corporate and Community Outreach Manager, South Florida Regional Transportation Authority (SFRTA)

The substantial decrease in ridership experience by public transportation agencies during the recent pandemic has made transportation marketing professionals rethink and reinvent the methods in which they promote their services. With temporarily reduced or suspended services, transportation agencies have had an opportunity to reset their traditional methods of promoting service and highlight the benefits of public transportation’s dependability even through the worst of times. In this session, the South Florida Regional Transportation Authority and South Florida Commuter Services will share their recent experience with a pilot program designed to supplant the discontinued feeder routes that support Tri-Rail’s commuter rail line. By harnessing South Florida Commuter Services’ experience promoting Uber and taxi services, Tri-Rail persuaded its passengers to change customary travel behaviors while implementing a program that provided insight on how the agency may address their services for the future.

PSTA and DTPW celebrate two first-of-their-kind premium transit service initiatives in the Tampa Bay and South Florida regions

Moderator: Stephanie Lewis, CUTR
Presenters: Abhishek Dayal, Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority and Jie Bian, Miami-Dade County Department of Transit and Public Works

Please join us to learn more about these exciting new projects!

Beginning this summer, the Pinellas County Transit Authority will begin operating a new Bus on Shoulder pilot project along I-275 between Pinellas and Hillsborough Counties that will be the first Bus on Shoulder interstate highway project in Florida. When traffic on the corridor slows to 35 miles per hour, PSTA buses will be able to use the newly improved shoulder lanes to bypass congestion. The project is expected to significantly reduce bus travel times and improve service reliability.

The Strategic Area Rapid Transit (SMART) Plan was created to evaluate and implement appropriate rapid transit treatments on six key corridors in Miami-Dade County. One of the six, The South Dade TransitWay Corridor is 20 miles in length and connects some of the fastest growing communities in the County. The Miami-Dade County Department of Transportation and Public Works will soon introduce Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) on the existing busway which will be the first BRT system in South Florida.
