Creating the Mobility Operating System of Tomorrow

How cities, citizens and industry can collaborate to enable the mobility revolution

New mobility has arrived. Today, twenty-one states have passed legislation to open the door to autonomous vehicle testing. EV prices and availability are improving, and the sharing economy is accelerating—all while cities grapple with congestion, pollution, affordability, and accessibility. We are on the cusp of a massive upheaval to the transportation system as we know it.

To help prepare for a beneficial future of shared, electric, connected, and autonomous mobility services, moovel Group and Rocky Mountain Institute invite you to an invitation-only, thought-provoking debate about one of today’s most pressing topics, featuring leading practitioners. Our goal is to spark a conversation during SXSW to inform policy and standards that will catalyze and accelerate commercialization and consumer adoption, and help prepare cities to future proof their mobility systems by capitalizing on new technologies and business models as quickly as possible.

Moderated by: Jeff Wood, Founder of Overhead Wire and Talking Headways

Who will be there: industry and academic thought leaders, government officials, policy makers, transportation and mobility stakeholders, select media and cultural influencers.

Why you should attend: We are in the formative stages of a dramatic transformation. Dialogue, debate, and practical learnings will engage and inform mobility stakeholders, cities, and other communities. You can be a part of the conversation as we work to ensure everyone will benefit from the mobility transformation, and that cities are prepared for it.
