Atlantic Ballroom C&D

The world is becoming increasingly urbanized, but with that growth comes the risk of increased inequality if development is spread unevenly across populations. Access to transportation is a critical component of empowering communities and encouraging equitable and sustainable urban growth. But in our increasingly urbanized world, how do we ensure that access to transportation is available to all, not just some? Can shared mobility play a role in promoting the public good?

Track 1: Expanding Access for All–Moving Beyond the Core: Low-Density Carpooling and Vanpooling
Pacific One (2nd Floor)

Discussions on shared mobility often focus on transportation solutions for high-density city neighborhoods. But most of the recent growth in the U.S. — and by far the greatest share of urbanized land — is now in suburban areas outside the urban core, as well as in smaller, lower-density cities. Panelists will discuss a wide range of mobility issues that affect small and midsize cities and strategies for addressing these challenges.

Track 3: Realizing the Benefits: Understanding the Impacts of Shared Mobility
Caribbean/Caspian Rooms (2nd Floor)

What are the environmental, social, and economic benefits of shared mobility? As more Americans are choosing to live in cities, increased demands are straining century-old, urban fixed-route transit networks. The rise of ridehailing companies, bikesharing, and demand responsive shuttles all signal that mobility needs for Americans are expanding and evolving–and these new, on-demand technologies are proving able to shift people’s mode choice from driving alone to shared modes, potentially helping to for reduce vehicle miles traveled, pollution, and household transportation costs. This panel will also focus on the Shared-Use Mobility Center’s new report, “Shared Mobility and the Transformation of Public Transit” which examines the relationship of public transportation and private mobility and the public benefits of shared-use services to complement transit networks to allow for expanded service areas, more cost-effective paratransit services, and first/last mile solutions.

Track 4: Implementer’s Track: Workshop on P3 Playbook – How to Foster Winning Public-Private Partnerships
Atlantic Ballroom C&D

Mobility companies have begun offering on-demand pooled and shuttle-based services that blur the line between public and private mobility. In response, city departments of transportation are beginning to look to private mobility companies as a means to supplement fixed-route transit routes for a variety of needs, including first-last mile connections and paratransit-type services. These public-private partnerships (P3’s) with shared mobility providers and aggregators are cropping up in cities across the nation, and this panel features some of the first and most innovative, including from : Pinellas County, Minneapolis, the City of Centennial, Colorado and Kansas City. Public and private representatives will speak to best practices and lessons learned from these cutting-edge P3s

1:00 – 2:00: Lunch Panel: Friend or Foe? Automakers in the Mobility Space
Atlantic Ballroom C&D

Changing mobility habits and shifting attitudes towards ownership have forced automakers to rethink traditional business models. This last year was a landmark one for partnerships, pilot projects, and investments by auto-manufacturers in new mobility concepts. During this panel, representatives of auto companies will discuss current and planned efforts to move from “car companies” to “mobility providers” and explore the future of the auto-manufacturing industry in shared transportation.

Track 1: Expanding Access for All: Bikeshare Equity Pilots
Caribbean/Caspian Rooms (2nd Floor)

More and more cities around the country are implementing bikeshare systems to give their residents a healthy, inexpensive, transportation option. Unfortunately, the residents who would benefit the most from bikeshare systems are often unintentionally excluded. How can cities ensure that their bikeshare systems are meeting the needs of all residents?

Track 2: New Transportation Solutions: Grassroots Ridehailing Programs
Pacific Three (2nd Floor)

As ridehailing continues to evolve, new models have to come to the fore, ranging from nonprofit, community-based TNCs to on-demand services customized to serve low-density, rural areas. Meanwhile, some existing operators have begun taking a “grassroots” approach by crowdsourcing routes and developing new service models that resemble the jitneys and dollar vans of old. Panelists will discuss these emerging modes of ridehailing and their impact on the transportation landscape of the future.

Pacific One (2nd Floor)

What’s in your wallet? With transit agencies and shared mobility providers adopting new forms of payment, including contactless cards, Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) smart cards, and app-based payment, paying for transportation has gotten both simpler and more complex. However, the future is bright with the possibility of converging a variety of modes into one app or smartcard — streamlining payment and access and providing a broad menu of mobility options for all.

City and regional planning agencies are increasingly turning to the concept of Integrated Mobility Hubs — areas of transportation connectivity that include public transit, carsharing, bikesharing, and more — to create seamless transportation transfer experiences. Yet, the definition of Integrated Mobility Hubs varies, and many municipalities struggle to bring plans to fruition. During this panel, speakers will discuss the potential of mobility hubs to transform transportation experiences and explore real strategies to bring plans to life.
