Authors: Susan Shaheen, Adam Stocker, Apaar Bansal

On September 8, 2015, UC Berkeley’s Transportation Sustainability Research Center (TSRC), in partnership with the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), hosted “Shared Mobility: A Sustainability and Technologies Workshop” at the UC Davis Conference Center. The workshop facilitated a dialogue among nearly 100 participants representing 28 organizations. There were 61 attendees from Caltrans, with 38 from Headquarters and 23 from various district offices. Caltrans employee attendees included planners, engineers, researchers, managers, and directors. In addition, nine participants were from the private sector and included individuals from shared mobility companies. There were 27 participants from other public agencies and universities.

 

This synopsis covers findings and discussions from the conference, and it summarizes the key topics explored throughout the day. The report starts off with recaps of the workshop introductions from Professor Susan Shaheen of UC Berkeley, Steve Cliff of Caltrans, and Socorro “Coco” Briseno of Caltrans. Next, the two expert panels are discussed in detail, touching upon key points made by each panel member and moderator. The breakout sessions are then covered, and the discussions regarding the impacts of shared mobility and on Caltrans planning and operations are reviewed. Finally, a conclusion summarizes the overall findings and key takeaways from the workshop.
