The Regional Transportation Alliance of SWPA is a 10-county public-private coalition formed to promote connectivity and mobility in the greater Pittsburgh region. The RTA crowdsourced over 800 organizations to find out the transportation problems faced by this region and is continuing to gather information to discover best practices and innovative solutions to address these problems. Their “Future of Mobility” forum wants to help you to imagine what better mobility and connectivity would look and work like.

The forum will feature two panels: “Ghost in the Machine: Anticipating Autonomous Vehicles” and “The Future is Now: The New Reality of Mobility Options.” There will be speakers from RAND, Uber, Carnegie Mellon University’s Traffic 21 Institute, Transportation Research Institute at UMich, TransitApp, and other technology leaders working on the future of mobility.
