This event will be held at EEFG, across the street from the Urban Center. Please see the Location section, below, for more information.

The car as we know it could be gone within the next few decades. The prospect of driverless taxis, increased ridesharing and other new kinds of mobility is forcing us to rethink how our streets and cities function. Learn what a car-less future might look like and what it means for planners and urban designers. This event is co-presented by EEFG.
