Transportation, Business and Environmental Groups Host Conference on Technology-Driven Transportation Trends
A coalition of local and national transportation, business, environmental and advocacy organizations will bring together community, political and activist leaders for the second annual Live.Ride.Share conference on rapidly growing, technology-driven trends and policies in transportation that are changing the ways we live, work and travel.
Speakers from across the country will gather in Denver to reveal the latest developments in innovative transportation solutions—ranging from new types of “smart” car pools to driverless vehicles—and discuss how they can transform cities, clean the air and improve public health, while also focusing on a renewed interest in walkable urban areas.
Denver is a fitting location for the conference, as it ranks in the Top 10 cities in the United States for high-tech transportation options.
Live.Ride.Share is hosted by the Natural Resources Defense Council’s Urban Solutions program, WalkDenver, Transit Alliance, CoPIRG and several other nonprofit organizations and cities.
