Opening Panel: Can Cities and their Disruptors be Friends?

We are experiencing a power struggle in cities – the municipal leaders are pushing back on disruptive mobility providers, insisting that they control the terms. Can the public and private sectors work together in the new mobility revolution? What do cities have to gain from embracing new innovations in transport? What are the respective responsibilities, and are these changing?

Panel - On Everyone’s Mind: Data Standards, Ownership and Privacy

The sheer amount of data produced by mobility services and transit agencies can help us plan much better transportation solutions. Shared and standardized data flow can help create multimodal systems and facilitate mobility-as-a-service. What role should cities and public agencies themselves play in creating new standards and APIs? How should data be regulated, and by whom?

Panel: The Macro Impact of MicroMobility

The rapid adoption of micromobility modes in cities worldwide has made strides in addressing the first/last mile problem and is shrinking the physical footprint of urban transport. While these smaller, electric options make better use of limited city space, the relationship between private operators and city governments has been challenging for both sides. How can we foster a more productive path forward that protects public good and enhances private business as micromobility expands further?

Keynote Conversation: Reinventing Mobility, Transforming Place

The expansion of mobility options has exciting -- and challenging -- implications for real estate and for civic space, from transit oriented developments in formerly carbound LA, to linear parks on a defunct Dallas airfield, to repurposed parking structures in every city where they are becoming underused. As buildings, streets, and parking lots are transformed from static assets into dynamically used places, we’ll talk about the opportunities emerging for commuters, communities, designers and owners of the land.

Pedestrianization of streets is becoming more popular by the minute with major cities around the world closing streets to cars. Walkable cities provide a high quality of life for their residents while prioritizing environmental sustainability and public health but increased foot traffic can also boost economic success for nearby businesses and improve safety. How are cities prioritizing walkability through policy and infrastructure changes and how do these changes affect a city's transportation system as a whole? How do walkability and economic success correlate?

  • to 5pm

Panel: From Competing to Complementing - Mobility as a Service

The last few years have seen a wave of new mobility solutions from ridesharing to electric scooters, from carpooling to shared bike systems. Yet they are rarely integrated. They often compete with public transit offers rather than complementing them. How can these various solutions be integrated to allow transit users a seamless experience? What does tomorrow’s mobility platform look like? And what can cities do to prevent the integration of incompatible “walled gardens” controlled by private operators?

Parallel Session

Panel: The Cost of Street Space: Congestion, Curb & Lane Pricing

Our cities are increasingly congested as the number of single occupancy vehicles on our roads continues to rise, and as new mobility services contend for street space and curb access. How can the public and private sectors ensure our cities remain livable and that space is shared appropriately? How can tools such as congestion charges and curb pricing aid cities in this?

Panel: Filling in the Gaps: Shared Mobility and Transport Integration

Shared mobility options are becoming increasingly important factors in our cities' transportation systems. Private operators are expanding their scope, size, and services provided, reducing the need to own a private vehicle, and filling in the gaps where other modes are less accessible or attractive to urban dwellers. What does it take to improve on-demand operations to integrate seamlessly into public transport, walking, and biking trips, and how can our government agencies evolve to derive maximum benefits from shared mobility options?

Panel: Data is the answer. What is the question?

Cities and companies alike are scrambling to control the vast troves of data created from public infrastructure, pitting fluent technologists against committed public servants. How can we defuse this tension, demystifying the use of individual data and making its collection more transparent and equitable? What rights do cities have to data created from the public realm? How can governments, citizens, and private companies work together to shape the use of and access to data?

Fireside Chat: Mobility’s Impact on the Traditional Distributor Model

The automotive distributor model has remained unchanged for decades. But how might new modes of mobility such as electric cars, online direct-to-consumer platforms, and MaaS force the automotive industry to abandon its independent dealership model and transform? Is it possible for new technologies to further disrupt the automotive and, more generally, mobility, industry in a positive way? How do we foresee these changes taking place in different contexts around the world?

Panel Brought to you by LA Metro: Innovative Service Partnerships between Transit Agencies and Transportation Network Companies

As an FTA Mobility on Demand Sandbox Demonstration grantee, LA Metro was awarded $1.35M, in collaboration with King County Metro and Sound Transit, to partner with a private new mobility company to provide first and last mile service to select transit stations. LA Metro launched its partnership with Via in January 2019, and King County Metro and Sound Transit launched Via to Transit in April 2019. What kind of data sharing agreement did the parties have? What were the critical points during the contracting process and how were they resolved? How did the parties align risks and rewards? How was wheelchair accessible service provided? This will be a panel focused on the contracting and scoping details of the two service partnerships.

Panel: Equitable Transport, Equitable Cities

Inclusive and equitable transport systems can foster equitable cities. Our transportation systems help us access resources such as education, employment, and healthcare. In turn, our transit options must be safe, affordable, and easy to use for all passengers. They require broad coverage, accessibility, and fair pricing in order to unlock and sustain real value for a city and its diversity of residents. How can policies like congestion pricing, transit line expansion, access for people with reduced mobility, and income driven fares adapt our systems to better serve all residents, particularly those that have been historically underserved?

Hop, Skip, Go: The Mobility Revolution Marches On

Over the next decade, many of us will find new ways to move. This next stage of human mobility, unlike the last, will not be defined by a single iconic technology. Instead we’ll be faced with a host of choices, most of them tracked and mediated by digital networks. In reflecting on what we’ve explored throughout the last two days of the CoMotion LA conference, we will gather some of the most important players in the new mobility revolution to discuss the way forward and what’s to come.
