Emerging Mobility Trends for a Resilient Urban System with Arup | June 30, 2020

Dear Members

 

The four paradigms of urban mobility: autonomous, connected, electric and shared – are set to transform both the transport industry and the built environment. This webinar will provide an overview of fast-moving trends that are shaping our transport systems and outline their impacts on cities, communities, and major developments. It will look into such considerations as flexible and adaptive policy, design processes and such operational strategies as “mobility-as-a-service.” The webinar will also offer a brief discussion on how we may need to rethink transport resilience in the age of the COVID-19 pandemic.

This panel discussion is free for all AIA members, with a maximum of 500 participants – on Zoom. Below are instructions for participating in this event:
