Transport Research Board Meeting 2018: Sustainable Urban Mobility Session

10 January 2018 @ 2:15 pm

At the 97th Transport Research Board Annual Meeting the U.S. Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the European Commission Directorate General for Mobility and Transport are organising a joint session entitled “Sharing innovative, tested practices in sustainable urban mobility in European and US cities”.

This is an invitation-only side session to the main TRB programme. There is space for up to 45 participants from EU and US cities, regions, public transport providers, public sector organisations, research organisations, and companies.

The session, which will utilise a roundtable format, enables participants to share tested, innovative urban mobility practices from European and US cities.

Topics likely to be discussed include electrification pilots, digitalisation and modelling, and gamification to support behavioural change. The session will also explore future cooperation opportunities between EU- and US-based organisations, researchers, companies, and policy makers.

Representatives from the cities of New York, Washington, Seattle, San Francisco, Bremen (Germany), Lisbon (Portugal), Bologna (Italy) and Enschede (Netherlands) will present mobility initiatives.

Also participating are the EU-funded CIVITAS Initiative (which has implemented over 800 urban transport solutions in EU cities since 2002), Polis Network representatives, NACTO, leading researchers, and representatives and technical experts from the FHWA and U.S. Department of Transportation.

This session is open also to non-TRB participants. Please contact us in advance as you will need to be met at the door to enter the building.
