ACCELERATE COMMUNITY TRANSIT + COMMUNITY TRANSFORMATION
More than 20 years ago, Rail~Volution caught and amplified a very exciting conversation about changing mobility options and community vitality. Starting with a focus on a transformation of cities and regions through rail investments, Rail~Volution has led the movement to build more livable communities through catalytic transit investments (whether bus, bus-rapid-transit, rail, streetcar, or high speed rail), their connections to other mobility options (bicycling, walking, sharing and emerging autonomous and mobility-on-demand options) and supportive land-use and development.
We have cultivated a national network of practitioners, advocates, developers and local leaders from across sectors. These leaders have used transit to advance a larger, integrated regional strategy of healthy, affordable, resilient and inclusive communities—places people want to live. Collectively, these individuals have experienced the victories, defeats, innovative solutions and complex challenges inherent in creating livable communities.
Today, almost every community, household and business is aware of coming changes in mobility options. The ACT2 program offers cities and regions the opportunity to harness and plan for effective, inclusive, sustainable mobility that in turn drives present and future community vitality. This is a moment when it is vital for regions to anticipate the positive and negative aspects of changing mobility options. It is vital to build collaboration around a shared vision and, from this, a commitment to act toward shared goals. A region that wins is better prepared for competition and better equipped to create livable, attractive places built on the spine of effective mobility.
ACT2: Tailored Regional Capacity Building
The ACT2 program seeks to accelerate regional success in advancing livable communities with transit by building civic capacity, creating successful cross-sector collaboration, and helping regions identify shared goals and define key strategic opportunities. The program is tailored to meet the specific needs and opportunities of participating regions.
