Transportation Planning for the Autonomous Age
It’s impossible to ignore the emergence of connected and autonomous vehicle technologies, and shifting social preferences toward mobility-as-a-service: ride, bike and car sharing, e-hailing and more. These trends pose new challenges to transportation planners as they consider the long-term future of their mobility networks.
Two of CDM Smith’s brightest transportation planning minds will share their insights and advice, covering topics including:
- What are the biggest changes impacting transportation systems over the coming years?
- How will these changes affect different aspects of the transportation ecosystem (e.g., mobility, vehicle miles traveled, land use, freight delivery)?
- Given the uncertainties surrounding emerging technologies, why is scenario planning a good way to augment traditional long-range planning?
- What short- and long-term actions should agencies take to prepare their systems for future success?
