Issues & Modes / Transportation Technology

A technological revolution has shifted the transportation services available to customers and the way they interact with those options. From demand management systems, intelligent traffic signals, vehicle automation, and new mobility options, technology is altering how the transportation system functions. While the long-term outcome of recent mobility additions like ridehailing services and dockless electric scooters is unknown, these services have already begun to influence regulation and legislation in cities and states. In some cases, technology has also changed the user experience by, for example, making it easier for transit riders to access the bus schedule and to see when their next bus will arrive.
