PAVE Virtual Panel “AVs and the City: Co-evolving AVs and Urban Policy”
While AVs are driving an evolution in transportation technology, urban policy is undergoing a renaissance of its own. City leaders are confronting the past century’s twin legacies of auto-centric infrastructure and sprawling development in order to improve safety, sustainability, and equity. How do AVs fit into the growing movement to build more livable communities and offer affordable, sustainable mobility options? Can AVs be a tool for reducing single-occupant vehicle trips and encouraging the adoption of alternative modes of transportation?
Join us for a thoughtful exploration of these questions and more, featuring some of the leading thinkers on urban policy and transportation technology.
