New transportation technologies and service – from e-scooters to autonomous cars and flying taxis – can expand our world, providing significant benefits to users, but these may be offset by the large costs they can impose on communities. As these New Mobilities become more widely available, how can we maximize their benefits and minimize their risks? Todd Litman’s new book, “New Mobilities: Smart Planning for Emerging Transportation Technologies” (https://islandpress.org/books/new-mobilities) critically evaluates 12 developing transportation modes and services that are likely to affect our lives and communities, and provides practical guidance for optimizing them. Come learn how communities can make informed decisions when planning for transportation innovations.
