Move America has announced the line-up and agenda for its online mobility event, running 17-18 March.

 

Cities across the US are adapting to deal with increasing congestion and pollution and the challenge to solve these problems has never been greater. Some cities have found innovative ways to deliver better mobility services and improved quality of life for their citizens.

 

In a packed programme of sessions, Move America seeks to share these experiences and best practices as well discuss and debate a range of topics and technologies that are reimagining mobility in cities around the world.

 

For example, the cities of Pittsburgh, Peachtree Corners, and Phoenix will be discussing how they have realigned their smart traffic systems to improve flow and reduce emissions on busy commuter corridors, making a marked impact on citizen safety and health.

“As we build the city of the future, reimagining mobility and how new technology platforms and network effects bring people together is a key contributor to the city’s economics and culture”

On the 18 March at 09:00 (PST), Paul Wilson, chair of SmartCitiesWorld’s global advisory panel, will moderate a session entitled: How successful smart cities and stakeholders build out plans that last. He will be joined by Jordan Sun, chief innovation officer, City of San Jose, David Graham, chief innovation officer, City of Carlsbad, Lava Sunder, general manager, Culdesac and Ron Cygnarowicz, vice president and board member, Transloc

 

“As we build the city of the future, reimagining mobility and how new technology platforms and network effects bring people together is a key contributor to the city’s economics and culture,” said Sun.

 

He continued: “Joining Move, I look forward to seeing how the public and private sectors partner to ensure we are balancing forward-thinking tech and business models with equity and inclusion in mind.”

 

As well as innovation and the latest thinking, the event seeks to highlight new business models, new and under-represented transport modes and novel and cross-sector partnerships.
