BAPA, Florida Atlantic University and CUES are proud to co sponsor a lecture by Berkley Professor Robert Cervero on trends in mobility. Walking and cycling are the greenest forms of mobility with the bonus of conferring meaningful public health benefits. Yet autonomous, connected vehicles and other smart technologies are poised to promote increased automobility, stretching out cityscapes and in doing, making it more difficult to walk and cycle. This talk draws upon research in the US and abroad on factors influencing active mobility and suggests pathways for increasing non-motorized transport in an era of autonomous technologies and other potentially disruptive mega-trends.
