Summary of the 3 Revolutions Policy Conference

The 3 Revolutions Policy Conference held on March 18th–19th, 2019 provided an opportunity to push the narrative forward on public policy solutions to address three revolutionary transportation trends: vehicle automation, electrification, and shared mobility. The conference brought nearly 350 registered attendees from government, industry, academia, and the nonprofit sector together in a sold-out auditorium at the UC Davis Conference Center. Speakers and attendees asked questions about how fleets—including ridehailing vehicle fleets (e.g., Uber and Lyft)—are electrifying their service vehicles, unpacked the nuances of how new transportation technology business models are impacting public transit, and identified policy pathways for ensuring these technologies can enable communities to help achieve their equity goals. The conference also dug into issues around the workforce, data privacy, and road pricing, among other topics.
