Plug & Play: Data Standards & Partnerships for New Mobility

Public - private partnerships that encourage responsible growth of new mobility services

Data standards and specifications are the building blocks of innovative, accessible transportation – but what does that actually mean, and how can we apply the experience of regional and international efforts to paint a picture of what this could look like in Washington state?


Join WSDOT, the City of Seattle, the Open Mobility Foundation, the University of Washington and Full Path Transit Technology for a webinar exploring how public-private partnerships are working with data standards to enhance connections to public transportation while encouraging responsible growth of new mobility services.

Meet our expert webinar speakers.







Elizabeth Bastian is a transportation planner at WSDOT focusing on transportation demand management (TDM), mobility on demand, and data policy. She also helps support the TDM Executive Board and TDM Technical Committee. Previously, Elizabeth worked for the University of Washington, managing the active transportation and U-PASS programs. She has a Master’s in Urban Planning from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, and a B.A. in Anthropology and Urban Studies from the University of Michigan – Dearborn.



Jascha Franklin-Hodge is the Executive Director of the Open Mobility Foundation (OMF). This city-led foundation helps government and industry collaborate to develop open source tools and data standards that support adoption and regulation of emerging mobility technology. Jascha was previously the Chief Information Officer for the City of Boston, a Visiting Fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School, and the co-founder and Chief Technology Officer for Blue State Digital (BSD). He attended MIT.



Kelly is currently working at the Seattle Department of Transportation at the intersect between new mobility services, urban freight, and technology to help test and develop policy for the future of transportation in Seattle. She previously worked at Amazon Prime Now, the ultra-fast 1 and 2 hour delivery service, leading US expansion and delivery optimization product efforts. Before that, Kelly worked as an environmental consultant, advising public and private sector clients on waste and energy efficiency analysis and behavior change programs.






Since 2000, Kevin Chambers has been helping public agencies and nonprofits make sure their technology investments serve their missions. From 2010 to 2017 he led technology innovation at Ride Connection, a Portland-area industry leader in providing mobility options to older adults and people with disabilities. He now consults through Full Path Transit Technology, focusing on technology at the intersection of mobility, human services, and healthcare.






Mark Hallenbeck is the Director of the Washington State Transportation Center (TRAC) at the University of Washington (UW.) Much of Mark’s research involves the collection, use, summarization, and reporting of data that describe transportation system use and performance. He is currently working with multiple agencies to examine how “big data” can be collected and shared, so that the data from those new technologies can be used to improve regional mobility, without violating the privacy of users of those technologies.
