The Future of Mobility Workshop Series
Principal Investigator: Sarah Kaufman
The NYU Rudin Center for Transportation specializes in policy related to the future of urban mobility. In the Future of Mobility workshops, the NYU Rudin Center will convene subject matter experts and government leaders. During the workshop, speakers and participants will identify policy initiatives and needs for seamless, technology-enabled urban travel.
The themes for these three workshops will be: the Three Revolutions (automated, shared and electric); Women’s Challenges in Mobility; and a Startup Showcase.
The NYU Rudin Center is uniquely poised to recommend initiatives to policymakers due to the Center’s relationships with industry leaders and New York City and State officials. By hosting this workshop series, the NYU Rudin Center will heighten the local discussion level about these topics, strengthen policymakers’ knowledge, and educate the public about key issues.
The first workshop in the series took place on May 23. More information is available on the event page.
At the conclusion of each workshop, the following deliverables will be submitted:
- A summary of the workshop
- A policy brief around the discussion topic, including background research
- Recommendations for planning for the future of urban mobility based on workshop discussions

|Implementation of Research Outcomes||The discussion workshops will result in event summaries and policy briefs, including recommendations for policymakers to improve mobility for future populations. The research outcomes will be disseminated on the NYU Rudin Center’s website and distributed directly to transportation leaders.|
|Impacts/Benefits of Implementation||The discussion outcomes of these workshops will help policymakers to better plan for the future of automation, gender disparity in urban travel behaviors, and the capacity of local startups. This work will benefit planners developing transit, such as siting bus stop in visible locations for safer travel, and adjusting procurement rules for startup integration. The NYU Rudin Center will conduct outreach to local officials with results.|
