Researchers say the future of transportation will be shaped by three “revolutions” – vehicle electrification, driverless cars and ride-sharing –…
Technology-enabled transportation services – like ridehailing, delivery apps, automated vehicles, and e-scooters – have revolutionized the way we move. But changing how we get around also impacts our environment. How does ridehailing affect air pollution in our communities? What are the environmental impacts of having packages delivered to our front door?
This workshop will bring together experts in transportation, consumer behavior, and environmental health to share perspectives on the environmental health impact of evolving mobility options. Participants will explore existing and needed research on the environmental health challenges related to emerging transportation services expected in the next decade.

Prioritizing the Path Ahead: What’s Really Needed to Preserve the Environmental Health of our Communities?
Building upon the previous discussions, key participating thought leaders will be invited to identify and define key priorities in addressing environmental health issues stemming from changing mobility patterns. It will also discuss the role we all have to play to mitigate negative and encourage positive environmental health outcomes.
Bringing it All Together: Information and Research Needs for Enhanced Mobility and Environmental Health
Using input and insights gathered throughout the event and reflecting on the prioritization discussions, we will identify needed next steps to address gaps in transportation and environmental health data, policies and plans, and ways all key stakeholders can affect future mobility changes that positively support environmental health.
