Proactive attention is needed to preserve priorities for low speed mobility options as we move into the future—this includes those who are walking and biking and connecting to transit, as well as autonomous shuttles, electric personal assistive mobility devices, electric skateboards, hover boards, and powered wheelchairs. Low speed users are at risk of bearing greater burdens on their mobility, such as facing rules or regulations to wear or embed technology that speaks to autonomous vehicles. Advocates for low speed mobility need to continue supporting people-first designs and illustrate how they play a crucial role in the formation of successful communities. Hear from an expert panel on what is already in play, the role of pilot projects, and what’s ahead for low speed mobility.
