Workshop - Micromobility and Transit Service Delivery Opportunities in the Underserved Edges

panel was WAY too scattered! interesting topic but was not well organized at all. I rarely rate workshops lower than 4 or 5 stars. This being a 3 hour session, I expected a much more organized and coherent program with more audience interaction. The first 2.5 hours were just your standard conference panel, but with more panelists and with each one talking for longer than normal.
