New Mobilities: Smart Planning for Emerging Transportation Technologies
June 24, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT
New transportation technologies are coming online faster than ever. While many of these emerging technologies are helping to expand our world, they need to be evaluated critically. Todd Litman discusses 12 emerging transportation modes and services that are likely to significantly affect our lives as they become more commonplace. He will examine how these modes and services are likely to affect travel activity, costs and affordability, infrastructure design and cost, and other elements.
This webinar will discuss why and how communities can maximize New Mobilities net benefits. This has important implications for TDM. Some New Mobilities can help reduce total vehicle travel, but others are likely to induce vehicle travel and sprawl unless communities implement with strong VMT reduction policies.
