With the emergence of electrified transit options and intelligent transportation system technologies, what are the costs, benefits, and barriers associated with these technologies that local governments, utilities, and transit agencies must consider and address? What best practices can be identified from electric mass transit and smart mobility case studies, and what can be done at the local, state, and federal levels to provide forward momentum in these areas? Are the visions of future transportation systems realistic and obtainable?

Join us for panel discussions regarding electric mass transit as an option for urban mobility on June 20-21, 2018. Our panelists will present on a variety of topics, including:
• Technology and Connectivity
• Policy Options and Issues
• Smart Mobility Case Studies
• Visions and Groundtruthing

This event is free, and lunch will be provided on both days. An evening networking reception will also be planned for June 20.
