PRCC Highlights Metro21 Safe Mobility Project "Rural County Mobility Platform"

Pittsburgh Region Clean Cities (PRCC) joins Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), Waynesburg University (WU), Greene County (GC) and the Metro21 Smart Cities Institute in a research study to design a hybrid rural mobility platform with both fixed-route shuttle service and complementary volunteer-based trips.

The study is led by CMU Professor Sean Qian, with a goal of improving mobility in rural Southwestern Pennsylvania and the potential to advance the fundamental knowledge of how energy-efficient, affordable mobility services can work in rural America, enabling them to be systematically planned, operated, monitored, and inherently merged with system-level modeling.
