CAR CEO Carla Bailo will discuss how communities need to plan for a future that involves multiple modes of transportation operating seamlessly and simultaneously. Connected and automated vehicles will be part of a transportation future that involves conventional vehicles, vehicle sharing solution, public transportation, ride hailing, and other transportation solutions. The coming autonomous revolution offers substantial benefits for the efficiency and safety of vehicular travel, including lower accident rates and first and last mile solutions. However, there may also be challenges associated with autonomous vehicles such as exacerbating urban sprawl, increasing vehicle miles traveled, and creating social equity issues. As communities develop and execute their annual plans, they will have to plan for their residents taking advantage of a much more flexible but also much more complex transportation system.
