Join WBUR on May 7 at 6:30pm at the WBUR CitySpace at the Lavine Broadcast Center at Boston University (890 Commonwealth Ave., Boston) for a panel discussion on ‘The Road Map of the Future: Transportation In Massachusetts’.
The transportation sector generates more greenhouse gas emissions than any other sector, and the pressure is on to make improvements. The specter of climate change is shaking up the business strategies of traditional automakers and giving a big boost to alternatives like peer-to-peer car sharing, biking, and scooters. What will the transportation system of the future look like? What are the barriers and how are upstart companies tackling them? How are big car companies responding?
