Harnessing Technology for Future Mobility 

From canals to railroads to highways, transportation technology has reshaped the Chicago region many times over. We are once again at a moment when new technologies and information, such as ride sharing and automation, are changing how people get around, and how and where they live. As transportation technology rapidly evolves, how will we harness it to improve our lives, local communities, and the region’s economy?

This forum is co-sponsored by the Illinois Institute of Technology.
