  • Personalization of Transportation
    Wednesday, June 3, 9:00-10:30 a.m.
    Presentation: The Personalization of Transportation
    Existing transit systems divide into demand response and fixed route, but new public and private transit and transportation services are using technology to blur those lines. In this session, we have speakers who will discuss how transit and private transit-like systems are developing and providing demand-based transportation for the general public. Our speakers represent a range of perspectives, experience, and opinions about the future of publicly available transportation. This will be an interactive session with attendees and we anticipate hearing your thoughts about the beginning of this revolution in the way transit and community transportation operate.
