California Transit Association


Shared Mobility, Automation, and Transit's Role

The California Transit Association and the University of California Institute of Transportation Studies (UC ITS) present an exploratory discussion between transit professionals and UC ITS researchers on the integration of shared mobility, Transportation Network Companies, and automation into legacy and future transit systems.

This program builds upon a 3 Revolutions Policy Brief released earlier in 2017 that summarizes some of the current research and thinking on this topic, recommends policy responses, and identifies future research questions. The 3 Revolutions Policy Initiative is part of the Institute of Transportation Studies at UC Davis that brings together academic, government, private industry, and public interest stakeholders to work toward ensuring the three transportation revolutions – vehicle sharing, electrification and automation – are directed towards the public interest.

Presenters include:

  • Joshua W. Shaw, Executive Director, California Transit Association
  • Laura Podolsky, Policy Director, National Center for Sustainable Transportation, Institute of Transportation Studies, UC Davis
  • Giovanni Circella, Director, Future Mobility Initiative, Institute of Transportation Studies, UC Davis
  • Joan Walker, Acting Director, Institute of Transportation Studies, UC Berkeley
  • Christy Wegener, Director of Planning and Operations, Livermore/Amador Valley Transit Authority
  • Tom Maguire, Director of Sustainable Streets, San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency
