The objective of the session is to provide military planners a better understanding of possible solutions to reduce auto dependency, with a focus on new service members, young families, and other targeted demographics. An overview of emerging practices on military bases and insights from the civilian sector will be shared. The intent is for session attendees to gain a baseline of knowledge, discuss their own experiences as a planner, and explore how various transportation and urban design techniques can be successfully planned and implemented. The session will begin with an overview to explain the historical context of how installation populations have become so dependent on personal vehicles. Current figures on military pay and automobile expenditures will be shared to provide additional context. Examples of how installations have helped mitigate the issue of automobile dependency will be discussed, with a focus on the "Go" program at Joint Base Lewis McChord that ties together shuttle services, bike share, and access to transit.
