Cities 3.0: Mobility Infrastructure

Main Stage Panel - Better Transportation > Better Cities > Better Living

New mobility must benefit everyone. Technology cannot do it all: inclusive, equitable access and coverage are essential to building a transportation system that can bring real value to a city and its residents. The ability to move seamlessly through our urban landscapes can fundamentally reshape them as more equitable and dynamic places to live. How can thoughtful public transit forge stronger communities? How can cities and citizens use new technologies to reshape their commutes and neighborhoods in fairer ways? What does the future city, revitalized by better transit, look like?

Panel >> Interactive Discussion Redesigning the Street

Streets comprise anywhere from a quarter to three-quarters of cities’ public space. New mobility patterns give city leaders, planners and residents the opportunity to reclaim streets, curbs and sidewalks as dynamic places for gathering, walking, or cycling. Understanding the implications of smart street design can help create arteries of wellbeing for thriving cities. How can better design help achieve Vision Zero goals? What does a truly human-centric street look like, and what are our best practices for creating it?

Cities 3.0: Mobility Infrastructure

Main Stage Panel - Riding New Currents: E-Mobility and the Future of the Grid

Electrifying transport will be revolutionary…but it won’t be easy. E-mobility at scale has huge implications for the built environment, the future of the grid and the massive energy transition to renewable fuels. Rewiring the grid to charge vast fleets of vehicles will require fundamental changes in urban infrastructure. What new infrastructure will take shape, and how can old infrastructure be repurposed?

Panel >> Interactive Discussion MicroMobility and LEVs: A Passing Craze or a Fundamental Shift?

Is the rise of micromobility — encompassing docked and dockless bike-sharing, e-bikes, electric scooters, and more – the last-mile solution cities have been searching for? What are ways to incentivize active and sustainable personal mobility? How can new mobility innovation and policy be balanced through more collaboration between public and private actors?

Autonomous Future & Digital Services

Main Stage Panel - The Future of the Carpool and Shared Mobility

As the shared economy continues to disrupt traditional mobility flows, the decline of personal car ownership seems to be an increasingly realistic prospect. Carpooling no longer relies on the minivan - it has evolved over the past decade into complex systems of ridesharing: from cars, bikes and now scooters that not only are changing the way we think about getting around but impacting the usage of our roads, curbs and sidewalks. At this rate of change, what does the future of shared mobility hold? How is the sharing economy gearing up for autonomy? And, in the United States at least, does the debate over shared vs individual car ownership threaten to become a highly politicized Second Amendment-type issue?

Freight & Urban Supply Changes
Autonomous Future & Digital Services

FireSide Chat - The Future of the Urban Supply Chain

From global trade routes to hyperlocal deliveries, traditional supply chains are being revolutionized. New technologies, from data-driven logistics to Hyperloop, autonomous trucking, deliverybots and drones, prompt the rethinking of urban and regional logistics. With more and more goods at the touch of our fingertips - and an increasing expectation at the speed and ease of delivery, it is no surprise that mobility providers are looking to further compress time and space. What does the future hold for the freight industry? How will this impact consumption? How are changing urban lifestyles altering the traditional logistics industry?

Main Stage Panel - Providing the Service of Seamless Mobility

With new mobility options constantly popping up, cities must be the providers and caretakers of a consolidated mobility service that fuses old and new modes together. How can MaaS answer the divergent transport needs of all urbanites? What does seamless transport look like and how can cities manage it? What steps do cities need to take to become the managers of their full transport systems?

Fireside Chat - The View from Above: Managing the Onset of UAVs

With street space at premium, cities and companies alike are looking to the skies as new thoroughfares for both passenger and parcel transport. Whether cargo drones, electric air taxis, or warehouse airships, these technologies will disrupt fundamental notions of urban density and connectivity. What policies should cities and governments put in place now to reap the potential benefits while protecting cities and citizens?

Main Stage Panel - Opening Up: Smart Data for Smarter Mobility

The ability to leverage data from a wide variety of actors is the key to understanding travel behavior and moving towards more efficient planning. Through shared, standardized, and interoperable information flows, responsive multimodal transport can flourish. What do current data patterns tell us about the future of our transport systems? How can the public and private sectors move towards more collaborative, open relationships surrounding data? How can new technologies be utilized to create more efficient transport tools?

Panel >> Interactive Discussion Women in Transport

Women experience mobility very differently than men. They pay a “pink tax” on their movement through the city, as they must navigate obstacles of timing, family, and safety often overlooked by men. How can cities promote women-centric design, and encourage women leadership in transportation? How can issues of safety in public transit and public space more generally be tackled?

Panel - Shifting Commuter Habits, Placing Public Transit First

The current mobility revolution is a cultural shift as much as a technological one. There is no better place to discuss such a change than Los Angeles, the world capital of car culture. Should cities promote public transportation and incentivize moving away from private vehicles? How can new mobility solutions and active transportation solve the first-last mile issue? Should public transit be free, and should congestion charges be the new norm? What does the future hold for public transportation?

Cities 3.0: Mobility Infrastructure

Parallel Sessions

Panel >> Interactive Discussion Blueprints of the MultiModal City

Integrated, multimodal transportation is central to the way we need to think of urban mobility - and this means big changes for our city spaces. Getting new mobility right requires a reworking of our curbs, street space and commercial real estate. What is the role of each actor in this ecosystem? What needs to change in curb management? How will parking and other car-centric spaces be repurposed in an age of autonomy?

Main Stage Panel - Managing the Revolution: Overcoming the Roadblocks to an AV Future

As the race for autonomy intensifies, now is the time to decide on the role of AVs in the future of our cities. Unlocking the benefits of autonomy has tremendous promise for safer roads, more affordable, sustainable and accessible transportation. The success of these goals depends on adequate public-private collaboration and multimodal integration. What are the biggest challenges that the AV industry faces? How will autonomy change the way our cities are designed?
