This forward thinking conference will convene government transportation officials/policy makers, transportation lawyers, academics & urban planners, and motor coach industry leadership to discuss working together to provide safe, affordable, efficient, equitable and sustainable shared mobility services in NYC. Both private and public buses are part of the solution, not the problem! As we continue to recover from the pandemic, the mobility landscape has already changed, and this event will present the current state of the industry and how it must evolve to a changing city. Topics will include bus electrification and infrastructure, congestion mitigation and pricing, innovative and automated enforcement concerns, the intensifying battle for the curb and proposed solutions.
