The Impact of Autonomous Vehicles & Other Technological Advances on Community Transportation

Transportation in our communities is changing, as new ride services such as Uber are expanding, and vehicle connectivity and automation is rapidly developing. These new technologies promise both opportunity and unique new risks. Autonomous vehicles and other transportation developments could reduce traffic, help solve parking challenges, and improve mobility for those who need it. But they could also cause new problems. The results we get will depend on choices communities make now before these technologies arrive.

In this webinar, David Thurlow of the consulting group Harmonize Mobility will deliver an overview of the new transportation technologies headed for our towns and cities, and discuss ideas for how these might be integrated in ways that benefit both urban and rural communities. Discover what has been learned from pilot projects in other areas, and consider regulatory options that put your municipality in the driver’s seat.

David Thurlow-headshotGuest presenter David Thurlow, Program Director of Harmonize Mobility, will look at current technological trends that will impact transportation planning for your community. The economic, environmental, and social impacts of vehicle automation (self-driving cars) and other related advances will be discussed.

NOTE: This webinar presentation will be expanded in greater detail during The End of Driving Workshop, a full-day event for municipal leaders and planners on Dec. 6, 2018 in Mississauga – see above link & below for further info.
