DC-area residents have more choices about how to get around today than ever before. Car sharing, bike sharing and ride sharing—and the apps that make these services possible—are revolutionizing transportation as we know it. DC is a hotbed of transportation innovation that the rest of the nation is watching.
Join transportation entrepreneurs for Transportation in the City, a discussion about new ways to get around and the future of transportation in Washington, DC and beyond. We’ll discuss what’s working and why, market and demographic trends that make these services succeed, the role of public policy in this field and how startup innovations are making a difference.
