Session 02

Mobility: Boston in Motion

In its history, Boston has served as a laboratory for mobility solutions. It was home to America’s first Subway and ambitiously buried an Interstate highway while it was still in use. Its historical ports and sailing ships made the city a hub of trade, and its modern parks and paths make us “America's Walking City.”

Yet, how does Boston prepare for the transportation challenges of the future when its first roads were laid nearly 400 years ago? In the second session of The Design Salons at Echelon, we investigate how Boston will survive and thrive in light of technological and social change, and question how the city will continue to serve as a laboratory for creative mobility solutions.
