About the 3 Revolutions Policy Initiative
The 3 Revolutions Policy Initiative is one arm of the 3 Revolution Future Mobility Program. The Initiative aims to seize the first opportunity in almost a century to create a truly sustainable and equitable transportation system. The 3 revolutions in shared, electric and automated travel could reduce transportation costs for users and society, while reducing emissions and environmental impacts. But absent policy leadership, the 3 Revolutions could also have enormously negative effects. These innovations could increase pressures for sprawl, vehicle reliance, and worsen environmental and equity impacts from transportation. It will be up to governments, transit agencies, and industry to steer these revolutions towards the public’s interest. The 3 Revolutions Policy Initiative aims to fill the growing knowledge gap and inform equitable and sustainable policy.
The 3R Policy Initiative was established in 2016 and has accomplished the following key activities:
The launch of ITS-Davis Director Dan Sperling’s new book, published in March 2018,
Hosting many successful events including the sold-out 2018, 2nd annual 3 Revolutions Policy Conference in February 2018, as well as
