Planning for an Automated Tomorrow, Beginning Today
1.5 CM / LU Pending
Automated vehicles, shared mobility, and other emerging technologies present a host of promising opportunities to planners and policymakers—and some challenging questions. How do we chart a course toward a positive future in the midst of transformative, unpredictable changes? How do we effectively partner with and harness creative competition among the private companies that play an increasing role in providing transportation services? What data and tools do we need to effectively plan, build, and manage a 21st-century transportation system? Hear from the City of Portland, Portland Metro, and TriMet about how they are navigating these challenges, both in the long term when developing plans and policies and in the day-to-day management and operation of the transportation system.
