Experts envision more ride sharing, fewer drivers

Top transportation experts in the US say they see rapid change in transportation resulting from three major technology revolutions – shared, electric and automated vehicles.

The 40 policymakers, researchers and representatives from government, nonprofit organisations and the technology and auto industries took part a survey by the Institute of Transportation Studies at the University of California-Davis.

The survey was held in conjunction with the launch of ITS-Davis’ new policy initiative, Three Revolutions: Sharing, Electrification and Automation.

ITS-Davis director Dan Sperling says: “For the first time in half a century, real, transformative innovations are coming to the world of passenger transportation.” This article first appeared in WardsAuto.
