What if the public transit system worked more like Uber? What if we could keep the air cleaner in Utah’s national parks by driving electric cars? And how would our society change if our cars were better at driving than we are?
Those are among the questions explored by a panel of experts at a recent Utah Foundation event on the Future of Transportation in Utah. We’ll hear from David Christensen, Executive Director of USU’s Sustainable Electrified Transportation Research Center, Teri Newell, Deputy Director at the Utah Department of Transportation, State Representative Robert Spendlove, Jaron Robertson, Program Manager of Innovative Mobility Solutions with Utah Transit Authority and Martin Ritter, CEO at Stadler US, a Swiss manufacturer of passenger trains which has begun operations in Salt Lake City.
