Unpacking Urban Mobility Services and Transportation Governance
In the pursuit of new mobility solutions, a new mobility ecosystem is emerging between public transport agencies, private industry, NGOs and entrepreneurs. Which cities are making real strides by shifting investment priorities and accelerating technology adoption? Some cities subsidize ride-sharing and call it a public transit investment. Are these changes saving cities precious dollars, lowering carbon impacts, and providing equitable transportation options? Embracing the app-revolution is just the beginning. What more can and should be done now to get us where we want to be in 2050? This session will discuss how cities, with a particular focus on Boston, are tackling urban congestion and raising the bar on their own performance standards for moving people better, smarter, on-time and on-budget.
