Transportation is at the Heart of Cities

October 29, 2019

When you think about how to build more resilient cities, does transportation come to mind?

Whether we realize it or not, mobility — the choices we make to get where we need to go — is top of mind every day. Your morning commute can influence your entire day. Your ability to obtain or keep a job depends on your access to reliable, safe transit. And the future of our global environment depends on reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Transportation luminary Robin Chase and NUMO director Harriet Tregoning discuss the Shared Mobility Principles for Livable Cities, the present and future of transportation, autonomous vehicles, and NUMO on the World Resource Institute's podcast.
