Old transit systems, congested roads and insufficient parking have been plaguing cities for the longest time. As cities are bracing for the return to a new normal, President Biden has put infrastructure high on his agenda. His formula to address both climate change and jobs includes investments into upgrading transport infrastructure, electrifying roads and cars, and regulating autonomous mobility. At the same time, cities are keen on minimizing individual vehicle traffic in downtown areas, replacing it with shared and public transportation models, encouraging biking and walking. As cars will have to share the roads with an increasing number of alternative transportation modes, such as autonomous delivery vehicles and electric tricycles, the question is how to keep the city flowing, all traffic participants safe and what role does data technology play.

Core questions to be answered are:

•    What mobility models could help to wean people off individual cars without compromising convenience and comfort?
•    What role will autonomous driving play in the solution mix?
•    What technologies can help to connect different transportation modes and the city environment to keep everybody moving and flowing safely?
•    How can new mobility concepts create jobs and avoid displacement of workers to offset lost labor opportunities through automation & robotics

Speakers:
•    Paul Thomas, Executive Vice President, Bosch North America
•    Kris Carter, Co-Chair, Mayor’s Office of New Urban Mechanics, City of Boston
•    Kristin Musulin, Mobility Media Strategist (Moderator)

Date: Friday, May 14th, 2021

Time: 12PM to 1PM ET

Agenda:
•    Introduction GABC Board member
•    Discussion lead by Kristin Musulin
•    Opportunity for Q&A via chat
