Electric Mass Transit as an Option for Urban Mobility


This public forum is presented by the Howard H. Baker Jr. Center for Public Policy, Tennessee Department of Environment & Conservation (TDEC), and the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA).  

With the emergence of electrified transit options and intelligent transportation system technologies, what are the costs, benefits, and barriers associated with these technologies that local governments, utilities, and transit agencies must consider and address? What best practices can be identified from electric mass transit and smart mobility case studies, and what can be done at the local, state, and federal levels to provide forward momentum in these areas? Are the visions of future transportation systems realistic and obtainable?

Join us for panel discussions regarding electric mass transit as an option for urban mobility on June 20-21, 2018. Our panelists will present on a variety of topics, including:

  • Technology and Connectivity
  • Smart Mobility Case Studies
  • Visions and Groundtruthing

Additionally, a keynote covering electric mass transit policy options and issues will be given by Caroline Choi, Senior Vice President of Regulatory Affairs at Southern California Edison (SCE). Click here to view the full event agenda.

This event is free and lunch will be provided on both days. Guests may park in the Vol Hall Garage on White Avenue at no charge by requesting a parking voucher from Baker Center staff at the event.
