Event description

Description

Autonomous mobility could introduce transformative change to cities, but not all cities have the same goals regarding the future of transportation. While some want to dramatically diminish non-transit car networks, others are banking on the benefits of AV services and new forms of mobility. How should cities adapt, what do they need to prioritize, and how can they ensure they have the right underlying technologies and infrastructure in place to ensure safety, efficiency, and accessibility?

Beverages & light bites will be served!

Arriving by BART

If you are arriving by BART, please get off at the Montgomery St. Station and take the exit that leads to 2nd and Market. From there, you will walk down to Mission Street and take a left going towards 1st St. 560 Mission is located on the left-hand side of the street, about halfway down the block.

Parking Instructions

There is parking at the venue (560 Mission St.) but it is first come first serve, and typically fills up during the day. However, it would likely open up in the evening, when the event is being held. If you are able to park in the building’s garage, Arup is able to validate. However, if the garage is full, you will be directed to a nearby downtown parking garage, which can not be validated.

Women in Autonomy encourages all guests and speakers to use public transportation to get to our events.

All Women in Autonomy events are free, but due to limited capacity at our venues, registration is required. Walk-ins will not be accepted. Please RSVP to secure your spot. This is a 21+ event.
