Keynote Address: Tony Seba

Tony Seba is a world-renowned author, thought leader, educator, and entrepreneur. He predicts a future where automated fleets of electric vehicles replace personal cars, cities become more self-sufficient, and regions accumulate political power, all driven by disruptive advances in technology. He will discuss the role of public transportation in this future and how transit leaders can lead rather than react to disruptive change. Seba is the author of the best-selling book “Clean Disruption of Energy and Transportation” and co-author of “Rethinking Transportation 2020-2030." Seba teaches at Stanford and is also a co-founder of RethinkX, a think tank that focuses on technology disruption and its implications for society.

What Will Cities Look Like in 2025?

2

Social and economic trends over the past 25 years have strongly favored cities and metropolitan living. Cities have thrived in generating economic output, job creation, creativity and innovation, and as vibrant places of culture and entertainment.  To what degree will these long-term trends be affected by the pandemic, protests over policing, and other current disruptions? Will health concerns and cautions about urban density affect life and work decisions? How will transportation decisions made today affect the design and architecture of cities going forward? How will streets and street life change as a result?

How Do We Bring Back Riders and Broadly Position Public Transit in the Year Ahead?

2

The pandemic has created challenges and opportunities for public transportation in positioning public transit for the future for riders and for stakeholders. How do we recapture riders? As we bring back service or need to reduce services, how do we prioritize services that are equitable and sustainable? How should our messaging change? What are the opportunities to position public transit with new stakeholders, such as health care organizations, to expand our advocacy?

How Can the Industry Put Social and Racial Equity and Inclusion at the Forefront?

2

The disproportionate  impact of the coronavirus pandemic on black and brown communities and the continued tragic examples of long-standing racial injustice have further illuminated the monumental work remaining to create an inclusive society. Public transportation plays a critical role in this effort. How does the industry address social and racial inequity and systemic racism with intentionality? What kinds of hard questions do we need to be asking our agencies and organizations? How can, and should, the pursuit of social and racial equity shape decision-making within transit organizations? Join these prominent leaders in a compelling discussion on how to create truly transformational change through the lens of equity, inclusion and anti-racism.

What Megatrend Should we be Paying Most Attention to Right Now?

2

Over the last decade the technology megatrends of smartphone adoption and electrification had tremendous impacts on urban mobility. So did the demographic megatrend of affluent people increasingly choosing to live in urban areas. What will the next decade bring?

Looking ahead, possible technology megatrends include automation, artificial intelligence, and enhanced connectivity through 5G. On the societal side, possibilities include a retreat from density or a preference for sharing assets instead of owning them. Overlayed on top are the overarching forces of climate change and political polarization. Which of these is most likely to define the coming decade? What impact will they have on transit? Are there steps agencies should take now to prepare?

Right after the session, you'll be able to go to a Zoom link to either "meet the speakers" and ask questions of them and other attendees... or you can elect to join the small group discussions where we'll be breaking out into small groups at random to try to get that "bumping into each other in the hallway" aspect of an in-person event.

I am trying to watch this mornings presentations, but it keeps buffering and makes it hard to follow along. Is this something with the site or would it be related to our own network?

It's most likely the bandwidth on your end, but someone will still be in touch, if not already.

My feed went out right before Eddie ended his speech; anyone else have that issue?

I cannot get back in.

Eddie was on fire...I hope they share the video from his speech membership wide.

We apologize, it seems like some, though not all, had issues at the very end of that powerful discussion. It will be available on demand tomorrow right here in the schedule. In the meantime, please trying refreshing your browser, or clicking the "Watch Live" button again.

The "How Can the Industry Put Social and Racial Equity and Inclusion at the Forefront?" session was excellent! Will this recording be available? I would like to share it with others in my organization.

I thought so as well! All of today's sessions will be available on demand to attendees tomorrow. Just come back to this page and go to the session on the schedule. Click the arrow and there will be a watch now video. If you missed anything yesterday, those sessions are now available as well.
