November 14: Scooters, Ubers and Bikes, Oh My!

While engineers and others continue tinkering with autonomous vehicles in labs, a transportation transformation is playing out on our streets and along our curbs. In recent years, we have seen bike share programs go dockless, multiple scooter companies arrive on our sidewalks, and ride-share cars continue their rise in popularity. With each innovation, our streets, sidewalks, and curb space become more active, more dynamic, more multi-modal, and more contested. This transformation is forcing cities to react and determine how to integrate modes, how to manage finite curb and street space, and how to manage congestion. How are cities reacting to these changes, and what should we expect next? Please join us to discuss the rapidly changing transportation landscape impacting our everyday lives.
