This workshop will focus on the challenges that lie ahead for a transit agency in the changing landscape of new mobility and emerging technologies. TriMet provides bus, light rail, and commuter rail service in the Portland, Oregon, region. Our transportation options connect people with their community, while easing traffic congestion and reducing air pollution, making our region a better place to live. What steps does a transit agency need to take to ensure meaningful, effective, efficient, and equitable transit service in the changing mobility landscape? How can we harness emerging technologies, such as autonomous ride-sharing vehicles, to enrich transit corridors and ensure transit priority? What updates are needed for policies, plans, facilities, access, parking, and station area amenities? Join this workshop to explore emerging technologies within planned transit projects, identify potential impacts to transit patterns and land use, and assess opportunities to embrace these changes and work towards desired outcomes.
