You're Invited to join the 3 Revolutions Conference

Transformative changes are coming to our world of passenger transportation—with the promise of huge energy, environmental, and social benefits. The 3 Revolutions in vehicle sharing, automation and electrification could provide our best shot at a transportation do-over, allowing an opportunity to right the errors of the environmental and social impacts of 20th century transportation. But this will require new and strategic thinking across sectors. The shared-use revolution, with the promise of low-cost travel, greater access for mobility-disadvantaged travelers, and less vehicle use, is promising but also elusive.

On February 26-27, 2018 the 3 Revolutions Policy Conference will assemble leading transportation experts and leaders to explore how we can steer shared, electric, and automated technologies and services to a better future. Join us in moving beyond hype and hostility in considering how we can anticipate--rather than react to—environmental, economic, and social challenges and opportunities.

The first 200 participants to register will receive a pre-release copy of the Professor Daniel Sperling’s new book, Three Revolutions: Steering Automated, Shared, and Electric Vehicles to a Better Future, set for publication in March 2018.
