Overview

Transportation is undergoing a transformative revolution. New technologies and markets – such as bikesharing, carsharing, transportation network companies (TNCs), zero emission vehicles, and autonomous vehicles – are accelerating innovation in the field at faster rates than previously predicted. Research that examines these current and future trends in technology is a necessity for informed decision-making on transportation policy. This session will focus on the recently-published Future of Mobility Study, which was prepared in partnership between Caltrans and UC Berkeley’s Transportation Sustainability Research Center. The panelists will discuss the research findings, which are intended to inform the development of the California Transportation Plan 2050 and will have important implications for planning efforts around the state.
