The intersection of technology and transportation is transforming life as we know it.

Road, rail, freight, public transport, shared services, drone, space taxi—the future of travel requires advanced infrastructure; modern connected, intelligent data systems; and responsive mobility solutions. If a robust, sustainable transportation infrastructure is the backbone of a strong and nimble economy, how can technology advances in mobility be supported by policymakers at the local, state and federal levels?

What are the chief infrastructure priorities to mitigate urban congestion zones? How is game-changing technology changing the face of American travel? What will President Biden’s proposed infrastructure plan mean for mobility? And how can sustainability be prioritized in current and future transportation systems?

The Hill gathers federal and state policymakers, technological innovators, local transportation leaders and experts to examine the future of mobility and the emerging technologies that will transform our communities in the near future.
