Nowhere is innovation occurring more rapidly than in the space of shared mobility. In cities around the globe, new shared-mobility services, such as ride-sharing, bike-sharing, and peer-to-peer rentals, are changing the way that residents navigate public spaces. Within these emerging business models lie opportunities to reduce environmental impact and congestion. But challenges persist. Pre-existing regulation and infrastructure features blur the requirements for successful integration. How can we create a robust network of mobility options that ensure different shared modes complement one another? What does it take to be a lasting and impactful company in the shared mobility space?

Join Asia Society Northern California to gain insights on industry developments and on-the-ground expertise in the shared mobility space. Topics discussed will include carsharing, shared autonomous and electric vehicles, bike-sharing, e-hailing, micro transit and more.
