Emerging Trends and Technology in the Transportation Field

  

A recent AAA survey found that most people are afraid of self-driving vehicles even though we know they are coming. At the same time, the desire to own cars is decreasing. These changes will dramatically affect the transportation industry. Planning and designing transportation infrastructure must adapt to emerging trends and technology in the transportation arena. 


Join our distinguished panelists – Jeff Marker, Public Transportation Division Manager at ITD and member of the Governor’s Task Force on Autonomous and Connected Vehicles; Crissy Ditmore, Director of Strategy a t the Cubic Corporation; and Jeff Wolfe, Found and CEO of The Car Park, as they discuss how technology is changing the way they do business.

Turning Transportation Vision into Reality: How Public and Private Sectors Can Align Land Use and Transportation

The mobility revolution – driven by emerging technology and shifting preferences – is reshaping our cities. Places that offer choice in how we move within, to, and from them will have a competitive advantage. Transportation oriented development (TOD) aligns land use with transportation infrastructure and planning to enhance economic development, quality of life and health outcomes.


Join ULI Idaho in a discussion with University of Utah Professor and Director of the Metropolitan Research Center, Reid Ewing, and a panel of local experts on the present and future opportunities for TOD in the Treasure Valley.

Try It Before You Buy It - New Ways to Build Cities

With city-building, we tend to think of big public works projects.  But yesterday’s big infrastructure is not delivering today’s expectations of livable, sustainable community design.  Moreover, while new technologies for mobility and smart cities pose potential benefits, they also pose risks. Learn how a new generation of pilot projects can help a community incrementally test, design, and futureproof new ideas.


 Lisa Nisenson is on the forefront of helping cities adopt innovation. She is Vice President of New Mobility & Connected Communities for the Wantman Group (WGI), developing new scenario and anticipatory planning services, as well as planning and project design that adapts to trends. She is founder of the civic start-up (GreaterPlaces), an award-winning site aggregating all aspects of city and transportation design. She holds leadership positions in the American Planning Association Sustainable Communities Division and Smart City Task Force.
