2018 Three Revolutions Conference 


On February 26-27, 2018 the 3 Revolutions Policy Conference hosted transportation experts and leaders to explore how we can steer shared, electric, and automated technologies and services to a better future. The conference aimed to move beyond hype and hostility in considering how we can anticipate--rather than react to—environmental, economic, and social challenges and opportunities. The 350+ conference participants received 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.
