Welcome & Keynote Address: Disruptive Trends in Transportation

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

California is witnessing a revolutionary transformation of our transportation system.  
The keynote will explore relevant research findings and address some of the following questions:
  • How are new modes being used, where, and by whom? What opportunities and challenges do they create?
  • How can we be proactive and/or reactive to the challenges and opportunities posed by new transportation technologies, new modes, new travelers, and new expectations? Will the private sector continue advancing quickly, developing new modes and new technology, while the public sector tries to keep pace with an often disruptive pace of change?
  • What private and public sector advancements have the potential to increase travel choices, reduce collisions, increase active transportation, and reduce greenhouse gases?
  • What can be done in the near-term, and what principles should inform our long-range planning efforts?
