New technologies are disrupting the entire transportation ecosystem at a rapid pace. The internet of things, autonomous cars and mobility-as-a-service are just a handful of the innovations that governments will have to reckon with. As to how the proper agencies will handle the change, the AARP Public Policy Institute’s Livable Communities team seeks to offer some guidance.

On October 23, the AARP Public Policy Institute will live stream a webcast on the future of transportation. Held from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., the event will articulate a path forward for managing transit innovation that emphasizes equity and sustainability. The keynote speaker will be Jana Lynott, Senior Strategic Policy Advisor with AARP Public Policy Institute’s Livable Communities team, architect of the AARP Livability Index and a thought leader on transportation. Afterward, a panel of transit innovators will offer more insights.
