This stream is two full days

In this stream, we will examine and illustrate macro adjustments that would make significant changes to the overall sustainability and manageability of surface transport. For instance, should we be controlling vehicle size, occupancy levels and emissions to access cities? Is there a model for timed and tolled road usage? Would restricting trucks and oversized vehicles from daytime or rush hour use reduce congestion, speed traffic flow and reduce fatalities? Or could we simply employ the Swedish ‘Vision Zero’ mentality to improve road safety?

New technology, such as hyperloops and underground tunnels, maglevs, and even buses and other public transportation forms that sit ‘above traffic’, have recently been shown as radical solutions.

Speakers from leading transportation solution providers and mobility thought leaders will be joined by hyperloop and city design professionals to examine changes that could radically transform surface congestion.
