Shared-Use Mobility Summit

The Shared-Use Mobility Summit is a two-day event facilitating a lively dialogue among mobility providers, policymakers, governmental agencies, non-profits, affiliated industries, technologists, academics, media and stakeholders on the current state of the practice, opportunities, and obstacles to market expansion.

This event will include panel discussions and presentations by the world’s experts in the fields of carsharing, one-way carsharing, peer-to-peer (P2P) carsharing, public bikesharing, ridesharing, and related sharing economy companies, representatives from regulatory and planning agencies, and allied industries, such as auto insurance companies, vehicle manufacturers, and technology providers to discuss issues pertaining to each of these fields, as well as shared-use mobility system integration. As shared-use mobility services have been growing in size and popularity since the late-1990s, long-standing leaders in the field will present the impacts of shared-use mobility systems, best practices, and identify key strategies for increasing shared-use mobility expansion. The goal of the multi-sector summit is to help shape the agenda for next steps, education/outreach, industry-wide collaboration, policy development, and future research.
