A panel held at the Baker Center Toyota Auditorium in Knoxville covered a variety of topics regarding electric mass transit and its potential in the United States.
Discussions ranged from technology and connectivity concerns to examining smart mobility case studies. Policy options and issues were also reviewed, as well as evaluating future visions and groundtruthing.
The two day panel, open to the public, analyzed the costs, benefits, and barriers associated with electrified transit and intelligent transportation system technologies while also addressing what local governments, utilities, and transit agencies must consider in making the switch.
With the emergence of these technologies expanding, best practices were also identified through smart mobility case studies and further analysis was conducted and discussed at what can be done at the local, state, and federal levels to provide momentum for these technologies.
“Electric Mass Transit as an Option for Urban Mobility” was jointed hosted by the Baker Center, Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation, and the Tennessee Valley Authority.
