Breakout Sessions

Participants will split into small groups to address the following statement:
"Transportation today is inequitable, inefficient, and environmentally unsustainable. Aspects of the 3 Revolutions in shared, electric, and automated travel stand to either exacerbate these challenges or offer solutions."

Each breakout group will examine this statement with respect to one of the 3 Revolutions topics listed below. Groups will be provided with case studies of relevant real-world problems that have already arisen and solutions that are being tested, and will work together to recommend next steps. Questions to consider include:
          - What will happen with no policy actions on this topic?
          - What are they key problems in this topic, and what solutions are available?
          - Who is best suited to implement solutions?
          - What datasets and/or tools are available to analyze impacts of the proposed solutions?

Note to registered participants: Please complete this Breakout Session Survey.

The goal of these sessions is for each group to identify a set of specific model policy mechanisms to guide future action on their particular topic. The conference organizers will work with interested groups beyond the conclusion of the breakout sessions to develop these insights into actionable policy briefs.

Breakout Group Topics

  1. Pricing Roads and Parking
  2. Electrifying AVs and TNCs
  3. People Centric Street Design
