Driverless Cars: The Public Sector’s Role

Thu, November 2, 2017 8:00 AM – 9:30 AM

In the past several months, autonomous vehicle (AV) regulations have been proposed in Chicago, Illinois and at the federal level. What policies on AVs should cities consider to capture the benefits of this transformational technology and address all its impacts?

We invite you to join the Metropolitan Planning Council and the Environmental Law & Policy Center for a roundtable discussion on Thursday, November 2, featuring experts discussing policies to make AVs work well for cities and the people in them.

Roundtable Panelists:

  • Mollie Pelon, Technology and City Transportation Program Manager, National Association of City Transportation Officials (NACTO)
  • Art Pearce, Policy Planning and Projects Group Manager, City of Portland’s Bureau of Transportation

The cost of the event is $15 for MPC & ELPC donors and students with a current ID, $30 for all others. A continental breakfast will be served; please indicate any dietary restrictions when you register.
