Revolutionizing the Road: Harnessing Technology for Equity and Access
March 9, 11am-7pm, The Vaughn, 310 Colorado st. The way we move through cities is changing dramatically. From electric scooters to autonomous vehicles, wearable transit passes to last-mile mobility solutions, technology is fundamentally transforming how we navigate cities.
Who stands to benefit from this mobility revolution? How will these dynamics reshape public transit? How are commutes likely to change in the future? Can technology help eliminate urban congestion and improve the environment? Or are we creating a society of mobility haves and have-nots?
Presented by CityLab Insights and moovel (becoming REACH NOW)—with featured programming by Rocky Mountain Institute—this event will bring together leading voices reshaping cities and personal mobility.
