Planning in a World of Automated Vehicles – Five Years Later

May 2, 2022 | 2:00 – 3:40 PM ET

Five years ago, in May of 2017 at the APTA 2017 Bus & Paratransit Conference, Steve Buckley presented on Planning in a World of Automated vehicles. At that time, there were many unknowns about the technologies, the economics, public acceptance, political support and the business models. Over the past five years, we have seen some significant advancements on all fronts, bringing greater clarity about when and how they will land, and what that may mean for how we travel. This presentation will provide an update on where things are going and what this may all mean for the transit industry.
