#TransLinkTomorrow: how can micromobility support a livable region?

On April 25, we held our latest talk as part of TransLink Tomorrow’s The Future of Mobility speaker series. We welcomed industry, academia and policymakers for a talk on shared micro-mobility. Shared micro-mobility refers to any small, human or electric-powered transportation solution such as bikes, e-bikes, scooters, e-scooters or any other small, lightweight vehicle that is being used as a shared resource between multiple users.

Thank you to everyone who attended! Missed it? Watch the archived Periscope livestream above.
