Networking and cocktail hour followed by presentation and discussion. Shared-mobility services, such as ridesharing, bike-sharing, micro-transit, and peer-to-peer rentals, are changing the way that people navigate public spaces. Technologies are evolving rapidly to include an ever-increasing array of mobility services and options. Automated vehicles (AVs) are the most disruptive of these technologies and offer a great opportunity to provide mobility options to people who are currently mobility constrained. However, AVs and mobility services can lead to a host of unintended consequences and secondary impacts if technology is not harnessed to provide a sharing of those services. Come hear from researchers and professionals how new shared mobility services are changing the transportation landscape and the potential impacts of these new services on our built environment. Speakers include Becky Steckler, AICP, Program Manager for Urbanism Next at the University of Oregon; Adam Millard-Ball, Associate Professor at UC Santa Cruz; and John Urgo, Senior Transportation Planner with AC Transit. Co-sponsored by WTS San Francisco Bay Area Chapter and APA California-Northern Section. $35 for members; $40 for non-members; $10 for students/unemployed.
