Join us at the 2018 National Shared Mobility Summit in Chicago on March 12-14 to discuss the latest developments in carsharing, shared autonomous and electric vehicles, bikesharing, e-hailing, microtransit and more.

The National Shared Mobility Summit is the premiere shared-use mobility conference in the U.S and a unique opportunity to:

  • Stay on the cutting edge of shared mobility with updates on the latest research findings, policy innovations and on-the-ground mobility transformations taking place across the globe
  • Network with the most innovative companies, the boldest cities and the nation’s leading mobility experts and change-makers
  • Collaborate with other transportation and policy leaders to tackle the tough issues and identify new opportunities through interactive workshops
  • Learn, play, innovate and help make our cities work for everyone!

Building on the success of SUMC’s previous sold-out National Shared Mobility Summits, this year’s event will feature a shared mobility expo, a series of collaborative, hands-on sessions, interactive tours and more. The 2018 Summit will feature learning opportunities for all levels of professional development.

A draft program is available on the “Summit Agenda” tab on the menu bar and will be updated frequently as new speakers and other details are confirmed.

Attendees include city officials, commissioners from departments of transportation, transit agency leaders, and CEOs of shared mobility operators, tech companies, insurance providers, and leading automakers.
  • An in-depth focus on public-private partnership development and relationship building across the sectors, including a reception, multiple networking breaks, and hands-on workshops to facilitate conversations.
  • A Shared Mobility Exhibit Hall which allows vendors to demo products, offer test rides, and engage attendees. The Shared Mobility Exhibit Hall is open for two full days and includes outdoor space that can accommodate test rides on vehicles, bikes, scooters, shuttles and other large displays.
