Policy Forum Series

The 3 Revolutions in Transportation: Sharing, Electrification and Automation

 
 

The University of California Institute of Transportation Studies (UC ITS)  and the UC Center Sacramento are pleased to present a timely policy forum series that brings together leaders in academia, the public sector, industry, and non-governmental organizations to discuss the latest thinking and scientific insights on a range of transportation challenges facing California. All four forums will be held from 12:00 - 1:30 pm at the UC Center Sacramento located at 1130 K Street, Sacramento CA. There is no cost to attend though registration is required. Lunch will be provided. Both registration and lunch will begin at 11:30am.

 

For the first time in a century, mobility is on the cusp of not just one transformation, but several: shared mobility services by Lyft, Uber, bikesharing, and others; vehicle automation; and electric vehicles. This forum will feature the latest analysis and science related to the convergence of these three transportation revolutions and what it means for mobility, sustainable communities, the economy, and environment. The forum will feature presentations from leading UC ITS researchers, and commentary from private and public sector thought leaders.

 

Moderator: Professor Dan Sperling - Director, Institute of Transportation Studies, UC Davis

Speakers: Susie Pike, Postdoctoral Researcher, Future Mobility Initiative, UC Davis

Professor Joan Walker, Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering, UC Berkeley

Guest Respondent: Hasan Ikhrata – Executive Director, Southern California Association of Governments

 

UC ITS BACKGROUND: Established by the California Legislature in 1947, the UC ITS represents a network of faculty, researchers, staff and students dedicated to advancing the state of the art in transportation engineering, planning, and policy development in California. UC ITS has grown from a single-campus program at UC Berkeley to include units at UC Davis, UC Irvine, and UCLA. Since 1992, the four ITS branches have expanded their research, education, and outreach programs to form the foremost university transportation research center in the world.
