The Broward MPO has allocated one million dollars to advance the Hollywood Boulevard / State Road 7 (SR7) study recommendations into design and construction. The Hollywood Mobility Hub improvements will include bus shelters, pedestrian-scale lighting, pedestrian and bicycle connections to the neighborhoods, and other transit amenities. This project will complement other investments, such as FDOT's roadway expansion along SR7 and the City of Hollywood's linear park north of the Mobility Hub location.

BICYCLE FRIENDLY

The League of American Bicyclists released its 2022 Bicycle Friendly States report, ranking all 50 states on their policies and practices to make bicycling safer and the outcomes in safety and ridership as a result of those efforts. Florida ranked in the top 10 for its actions to build a Bicycle Friendly network for everyone!

Bicycle Friendly Actions include a Complete Streets policy, a safe passing law, a statewide bike plan, spending 2% or more of federal transportation money on biking and walking, and a bicycle safety emphasis area.
COMTO SCHOLARSHIP

Do you know a high school senior or a current college student with a minimum of 12- credit hours studying in a transportation-related degree program? Spread the word; our partner, the Conference of Minority Transportation Officials (COMTO) Fort Lauderdale, has extended its scholarship application deadline to Friday, May 20!

The COMTO Fort Lauderdale Scholarship Program was designed to encourage minority High School students to consider a career in transportation and to support minority post-secondary education students majoring in a transportation-related field.
UNDERSTANDING SHARED MIRCOMOBILITY

Inspired by the National Association of City Transportation Officials (NACTO) bike-sharing survey toolkit, Dr. Chris Cherry and Yi Wen, researchers at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, partnered with the New Urban Mobility alliance (NUMO) to create an E-Scooter Survey Question Toolkit.  The toolkit intends to guide researchers, transportation practitioners, and other industry professionals in designing user surveys that collect consistent, reliable, and comparable data that contribute to a broader understanding of the impacts and use of e-scooters.

Prior to this development, each local government, transportation agency, and industry researcher has used its own surveys with varying questions, leading to flawed data. What and how questions are asked matters to measure the true impact that informs decision-making about shared micromobility!
