“Everything around us has electronic wireless capabilities. That gives us an opportunity to start to manage our transportation system in a very different way because of all the computing power and algorithms that are operating behind the scenes, in our cars & on our phones,”

This week is about mobility: angling to find a way to make the infrastructure meet the goals of a more efficient, mobile society.
The economics are clear (see the recent McKinsey report). Socially and politically? Well, that’s a tougher nut.
Dr. Susan Shaheen and her colleagues at UC Berkeley’s Transportation Sustainability Research Center are keeping the conversation – and the data – lively.
Dr. Shaheen is often on Capitol Hill, testifying about the possibilities of increased mobility for the United States. She’s our guest this week.
Have great weeks, everybody.
