MOBILITY ON DEMAND FORUM - JUNE 3, 2019 at 2:30 – 6:00 PM
Are you MOD curious? Mobility on Demand (MOD) is a vision for an integrated network of safe, carefree, and reliable transportation options that are available to all. In today’s rapidly changing and growing transportation landscape, cities, DOTs, transit agencies, mobility and micro-mobility providers, data companies, financial and insurance services and many others are focused on how to deliver customer-focused, seamless mobility. But it takes work. And working together.
ITS America’s Mobility on Demand Alliance is hosting the first of what will be ongoing forums in conjunction with ITS America’s annual meetings, where we will be showcasing successes and tackling some of the key issues facing MOD’s rapid transformation of how we move.
The afternoon will begin (2:30 – 3:30) with a MOD Alliance member-only portion for a deep dive into policy recommendations for advancing MOD as part of the transportation funding reauthorization.
From 3:30 – 6:00 we will open it up to:
Frame the building blocks of MOD with Phil Washington, CEO of LA Metro;
Hear from our keynote speaker Hardik Bhatt, leader of Amazon Web Services, Digital Government Vertical, former CIO of Chicago and CIO of state of Illinois; and
Tackle MOD’s biggest elephant in the room – sharing and harnessing the power of the data, that powers mobility on demand.
A networking reception follows the event.
Space is Limited - Tickets are free to ITSA Members and $25 for Non-Members

Joint National Organizations Meeting: Advancing Roadway Automation Readiness - Tuesday, June 4th at 9:30am to 11:30AM
This meeting brings together leaders and members from several national organizations to discuss next steps for advancing roadway automation readiness. Roadway automation readiness in this context refers to the various elements necessary for the safe integration of automated vehicles into the nation’s roadway network. The physical roadway infrastructure (e.g., pavement, traffic control devices), key institutions (e.g., state and local transportation agencies), and the policy environment (e.g., legislation) will need to adapt to address automated vehicles. This session will explore the current state of readiness and identify future needs for advancing readiness for automated vehicles.
Insights from several national organizations will be shared, including from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Intelligent Transportation Society of America (ITSA), Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE), American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), and the Cooperative Automated Transportation (CAT) Coalition, amongst others.
