ABOUT THE MOBILITY INNOVATIONS SPEAKER SERIES
Seattle is experiencing massive growth. In fact, we are one of the fastest growing cities in the nation. Construction cranes are a common sight throughout the city and in the next 20 years, we’re expecting 120,000 more residents and 115,000 more jobs. This is great news for our economy, but also a test for our transportation network.
While last November’s passing of the Levy to Move Seattle provides funding to improve mobility for all travelers, innovations in mobility services and technology will also play a role in the growth of our region. To that end, the Seattle Department of Transportation is hosting a speaker series, convening local and national oracles in transportation technology and mobility to provide insight on what Seattle can do to accept growth while maintaining quality of life.
We are convening North America’s leading minds on emerging mobility trends. They’ll give us a peek into what it means to move and use public space now and in the future.
Speaker Series Kickoff on November 14: Making integrated mobility hubs a reality in Seattle
We kickoff the speaker series on November 14, focusing on the topic of mobility hubs. Navigating the connections between Seattle’s wide range of transit services and shared mobility options can be a challenging endeavor, particularly at major transit facilities. The City of Seattle is partnering with transit agencies and private mobility services to develop a network of shared mobility hubs throughout the city, providing better mobility and integrated transportation choices for all. Learn about this effort, similar efforts throughout North America, and how mobility hubs can transform the travel experience in the future.
Our distinguished guest speakers and leaders in the mobility hub movement include Seleta Reynolds (General Manager of Los Angeles DOT), David Bragdon (Executive Director of TransitCenter), and Sharon Feigon (Executive Director at the Shared Use Mobility Center). Scott Kubly will provide a local voice on SDOT’s Shared Mobility Hub program and Ross Reynolds from KUOW will moderate the conversation.
