NOVEMBER 17-19, 2019 | SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS | #OPEN4INNOVATION
Mobility with a Future Focus. The Texas Innovation Alliance in partnership with the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), City of San Antonio, VIA Metropolitan Transit, Bexar County, Southwest Research Institute (SwRI), and metropolitan regions across the state invite you to the fourth annual Texas Mobility Summit on November 17-19, 2019.
The Summit is a forum of innovation that brings together transportation leadership – policymakers, public agencies, research, industry, and community organizations – with the goal of developing shared solutions to the state’s most pressing mobility challenges. This year, the Alliance is focusing on coordinating mobility-as-a-service initiatives, developing connected and automated vehicle best practices, and strengthening the links between the transportation system and access to economic opportunities.
As a leader in transportation, you have an opportunity to connect with transportation decision makers around the country, learn about current mobility needs and future partnership opportunities, and shape the future of Texas transportation by contributing to Texas’ mobility action plan.
Nov. 17: Welcome Event & Demo Day! – Experience the future of Texas transportation. In an interactive afternoon, participants have the opportunity to ride in driverless vehicles, see safety critical connected vehicle technology in action, and meet the brightest minds in the startup community. Demo Day Location: Freeman Coliseum at 3201 E Houston St, San Antonio, TX 78219.
Nov. 18: Investing in Innovation – How is Texas preparing to meet its future mobility needs? Discover new partnership models and learn about how Texas plans to catalyze advanced mobility projects by coordinating local, state, federal, and private sector funding. Then explore multiple tracks that delve into connected and automated vehicles, freight and logistics, and new mobility data management.
Nov. 19: Designing for Change – How do transportation officials make decisions in a rapidly changing environment? Tap into the most impactful trends and technologies that are reshaping Texas mobility – from population aging and urban expansion to the next generation of transit and communications technologies. Contribute to Texas’ mobility action plan by capturing lessons learned and developing strategies in the areas of scenario planning, equity and access, and micromobility.
Networking Opportunities: The Summit brings together transportation leaders from inside and outside Texas – elected officials, state agencies, transit authorities, city and county departments, metropolitan planning organizations, and more – to envision and advance smart mobility solutions. The Summit will feature keynotes from industry, TxDOT executive leadership, local and state elected officials, as well as national cities who are leading the way. It is an opportunity to bring awareness to decision makers, share lessons learned from real-world deployments, and direct investment to advance and sustain deployments.
