The Expanding and Accelerating Universe of Ground Transportation Tech Innovation
We are now at a technological cross-roads in the ground transportation universe, where technology will continue to improve and transform private and quasi-public for-hire ground transportation services, as well as redefine its ability to inter-face with other transportation modes. Like the discovery that the universe is actually expanding and accelerating more rapidly since the Big Bang, technological and private sector ground transportation pro-gress is accelerating to virtually light speed. These technological changes are shaking-up the existing paradigm—placing traditional in-dustry stakeholders, passengers, government regulators, and start-up tech companies on an astronomical collision course with one another. This lecture will address policy is-sues surrounding new and emerging ground transportation technology, offering inside perspective on its historical evolution, recommended resolutions to problems, and predic-tions for the future.
