Digital Equity and Engagement in Mobility, with Crissy Ditmore
The Smart Community Podcast
In this episode of the Smart Community Podcast I have a great chat with Crissy Ditmore, the Director of Strategy for Cubic Transportation Systems, where she is working on the expansion of Mobility as a Service across the globe. Crissy is also Chair of the Board or the TravelSpirit Foundation North America, Co Chair for the Mobility on Demand Alliance Public Policy Committee, is active with the Coalition for Smarter Transportation and a 2019 MaaS Transit Magazine Top 40 Under 40. It’s fair to say she was a perfect guest for our #mobilitymarch series.In this episode, Crissy and I discuss her background of over 15 years in the mobility industry and why she’s so passionate about the opportunity for mobility to be an equaliser and reduce divides within our community. We talk about Digital Equity when it comes to mobility, especially Mobility as a Service, and the importance of real stakeholder engagement in this space. Crissy shares with us her perspective on the future of transport and how mobility is only one part of the value chain of happiness in the Smart Community ecosystem. We talk about the importance of enabling equity through policy decisions, and how emotional intelligence in difficult conversations is what’s needed for better integration and fewer silos. We finish our chat discussing the emerging trends of balancing new innovation with improving on existing solutions, as well as the things that Crissy wishes were trending in mobility.As always we hope you enjoy listening to this episode as much as we enjoyed making it!Find the full show notes at: www.mysmart.communityConnect with Crissy on LinkedIn, or Twitter and Instagram @fabcitycrissyConnect with me via email: email@example.comConnect with My Smart Community via LinkedIn or TwitterThe Smart Community Podcast is produced by Perk Digital.
