Before COVID-19 dramatically altered the urban landscape overnight, cities were experiencing a major shift in the way we move around: tech-based ride hailing, new micromobility options, and autonomous vehicle pilots were deployed to various degrees in cities around the world. The pandemic has simultaneously underscored the inequities present across urban mobility systems and kick-started a paradigm shift for urban streets in New York such as DOT’s open streets programs, outdoor dining, and a surge in cycling. As technologies and trends continue to shape urban transportation, we have convened an expert panel for a discussion on how to center equity in conversations about the planning, design, and policy around new micromobility options.
Join the APA New York Metro Urban Design Committee for a conversation with the people working to shape this conversation as we ask: How do we make sure that folks that have been most left behind in transit accessibility are centered during discussions about new mobility system planning and roll out? Where has this been done successfully, what have the challenges been, and what strategies can we use to overcome them? What is the role of city agencies, designers, and mobility tech companies in developing more equitable transportation systems?
