Revolutions in Transportation: How they impact the quality of urban life and the age-friendliness of cities

February 7, 2019
Perkins + Will San Francisco 
 

THE TAKEAWAY: After decades of no change in urban transportation infrastructure – your parents and grandparents already waited at the bus stop – we are now in the midst of a transportation revolution, from ride sharing services to autonomous cars, that is rapidly changing the way we get from A to B. This forum will look at the potential impact of this trend on the quality of urban life and how this might affect the age-friendliness of a city.
