Cities and governments are faced with the need to manage the interaction of emerging and future transportation modes with existing private and public transportation. The impacts on congestion, the environment, and social equity of TNCs, scooters, and autonomous vehicles are not fully understood. Yet, as these technologies may mature and reach scale quickly, stakeholders are looking for policies and technological solutions that will help them achieve manageable outcomes and will adapt and scale as new modes grow.
This panel will explore a range of policy frameworks that could govern tradeoffs between transportation modes and help cities accomplish social goals through pricing and other incentives. We will make these recommendations concrete and actionable by discussing the required digital infrastructure that cities will need to implement effective policies. The panel will update the audience on existing efforts to build and implement such "mobility operating systems.
1. In this session, participants will be able to understand the range of policy tools that governments can use to reduce the negative externalities of transportation or encourage greater social benefits.
2. In this session, participants will be able to understand the benefits of cities building "digital infrastructure" to better manage emerging transportation modes. Participants will better understand the intersection between physical and digital infrastructure.
3. In this session, participants will be able to understand the current state of policies and digital infrastructure to manage emerging transportation modes as well as lessons learned from previous policies enacted to shape the impact of transportation.
4. In this session, participants will be able to understand the economic implications of policies designed to shape the impact and outcomes of emerging transportation modes.
