Mia Zmud, Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority,
Caleb Winter, Oregon Metro

Sponsored by:
Standing Committee on Transportation Demand Management (ABE50)
Standing Committee on Congestion Pricing (ABE25)

This workshop aims to prepare planners and others for the unpredictable future of mobility given the emerging CAV technology. Participants will be introduced to a range of possible impacts of CAV on transportation demand management and sustainable travel modes from panelists representing various perspectives including the public, automotive industry, Federal and local government, academia and planners. A lively interactive discussion with panelists will follow. Finally, participants will participate in small breakout groups to discuss “what if” scenarios representing the possible mobility future scenarios chosen for their transformative potential and varying degrees to which vehicle ownership and vehicle control could drive impact on TDM. 

Interactive Workshop Agenda

1:30- 1:50     Welcome and Introduction, Video on CAV Technology , Mia Zmud, CTRMA
1:50-3:00   Panel Presentations, representing the following perspectives:
Public acceptance, Johanna Zmud/Ipek Sener Texas Transportation Institute
Automotive Industry, Katherine Baireuther, City Solutions, Ford Smart Mobility
Federal Government, Allen Greenberg, USDOT FHWA Office of Operations
Federal Government, Jake Ward, USDOE EERE Vehicle Technologies Office

3:00 - 3:25  Interactive Panel Discussion, facilitated by Caleb Winter, Oregon Metro and Prachi Vakharia, Steer
3:30 - 4:10 Scenario Breakout Groups, facilitated by Mia Zmud  and Jake Ward
-- Workshop Participants will be assigned to participate in small group discussions pertaining to one of four scenario narratives (incremental change, shared-mobility, personal automotive, shared automotive)
-- The scenario narratives were developed through a US DOE scenario planning project and are documented in the report, The Transforming Mobility Ecosystem: Enabling an Energy Efficient Future.  Workshop participants are encouraged to review the scenario narratives before the workshop -- see pages 6-8 in the following report (URL Link):  
-Discussion questions for each scenario narrative
- What are the implications for TDM given this scenario?
- What are the near-term strategies for addressing these impacts?
- What can be done to shape or influence the scenario coming into fruition?
- Given the above, what are future research topics of interest?
4:10 - 4:30  Breakout Group Reports and Wrap Up, facilitated by Trey Baker, WSP USA
