Podcast: Planning the Autonomous Future
In the third episode of the APA Podcast series Planning the Autonomous Future, hosts Jennifer Henaghan and Kelley Coyner take stock of multiple autonomous-vehicle-focused sessions from the 2018 National Shared Mobility Summit, which took place March 12–14 in Chicago.
Later on in the episode, they welcome Jeff Tumlin, principal and director of strategy at Nelson\Nygaard, to the table. Jeff moderated the summit plenary session called "The (Shared) Road Ahead: An Electrified, Connected, Autonomous, and Accessible Vision of Transit," and he discussed the topic with Jennifer and Kelley, touching on what could happen if autonomous vehicles aren't shared. He also divulges why we need to prioritize space-efficient modes of transportation for AVs to work and why planners need to take sprawl seriously when planning for autonomous vehicles.
