Wrap-Up from the 3 Revolutions Policy Conference

The Third Annual 3 Revolutions Policy Conference - Deemed A Sold Out Success!

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 enabled nearly 350 registered attendees from government, industry, academia, and the nonprofit sector to come together in a sold out auditorium at the UC Davis Conference Center. Speakers and attendees asked questions about how fleets are electrifying their service vehicles- including ridehailing vehicle fleets (e.g. Uber and Lyft). Speakers and attendees 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 workforce challenges, data privacy issues, and road pricing strategies, among other topics. More info....
