New transportation technologies are coming online faster than ever. While many of these emerging technologies are helping to expand our world, they need to be evaluated critically. Todd Litman, author of the new book New Mobilities: Smart Planning for Emerging Transportation Technologies will discuss 12 emerging transportation modes and services that will likely significantly affect our lives as they become more commonplace. Litman will explain how these modes and services, including bike and car sharing, micro-transit and electric vehicles, may affect travel activity, costs and affordability, infrastructure design and cost, and other elements.
