Three Revolutions for Public Transit: From Service Agency to Mobility Platform

Sunday, January 07, 2018, 9:00 AM-12:00 PM, Convention Center
Hanjiro Ambrose, University of California, Davis; Timothy Sexton, Minnesota Department of Transportation, presiding
Sponsored by Standing Committee on Transportation and Sustainability; and Standing Committee on Alternative Transportation Fuels and Technologies

Transit agencies serve multiple goals, from providing equitable access to mobility to reducing pollution and congestion. Three transformative technology transitions—electrification, automation, and sharing of vehicles—pose a unique set of challenges. How can transit agencies become platforms that enable the development and deployment of new services, processes, or mobility technologies? In this workshop, participants help create a road map for agency transitions and more through a strategic game.
