Featured Panel: Turning Research into Behavior Change
What does it take for TNC passengers to choose shared rides instead of solo products? What are riders’ biggest barriers to Mobility on Demand adoption? This session will showcase the latest shared mobility research followed by a discussion on how to use data to change behaviors towards more equitable and sustainable travel. Learn about this topic straight from experts, FHWA Senior Policy Analyst, Allen Greenberg and Vice President of Innovative Mobility and Emerging Technology at ITS America, Nicole DuPuis.
