The intersection of technology and transportation is transforming life as we know it.

Autonomous vehicle infrastructure has arrived. In a few years there will be no circling the block to find a parking space. In fact, no parking, no driver. All of this transformation will piggyback on next-gen mobility infrastructure.

Road, rail, freight, public transport, shared services, drone, space taxi—the future of travel requires advanced infrastructure; modern connected, intelligent data systems; and responsive mobility solutions.

How is game-changing technology changing the face of American travel? What will President Biden’s proposed infrastructure plan mean for mobility? And how can sustainability be prioritized in current and future transportation systems?
