In recent years, cities are being challenged by a growing number of micromobility options. The use of traditional parking space, package delivery, and pick-up/drop-off locations are now competing with the desire to incorporate bike lanes, shared bikes and e-scooters. Demand on curb space is increasing and new micromobility providers from scooters, e-bikes or shared mopeds bring a new set of challenges. How can we develop such services for the public good? Which sharing models have worked for cities around the globe? How does the micromobility landscape transform into a (post-)pandemic world? 

Join the conversation with thought leaders and experts from Silicon Valley and Europe to learn more about the future of micromobility and how these new services will be integrated into the urban mobility landscape.

This is the first panel of the four part series Next Stop: Approaching the Future of Mobility that surfaces ideas and insights from mobility experts in four main areas: micromobility, simulation of mobility, hyperloop, and autonomous vehicles. This series is a collaboration between the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB), and swissnex San Francisco, and will feature a mix of panels and presentations with thought-leaders, presentations from leading startups, insights into the most cutting-edge new vehicles, networking opportunities, and more.
