Preparing for Autonomous Vehicles: A Survey of Local Governments Webinar
Recorded On: 05/19/2020
COVID-19 has had a major impact on taxi and ride-sharing businesses and other forms of transit as social distancing has become the norm. Moving forward, autonomous vehicles (AVs) could see increasing demand as people are less inclined to share small spaces. If AVs are widely adopted, municipal governments, through their abilities to set and enforce regulations, will play an important role in determining how transportation and land use evolves in response to AV adoption.
During this webinar, David Dale-Johnson, Ph.D., Stan Melton Executive Professor in Real Estate at the Alberta School of Business Real Estate Program, will discuss the findings of his report, “Preparing for Autonomous Vehicles: A Survey of Local Governments,” and identify several key takeaways that are of interest to developers, landowners and the broader commercial real estate community, including implications for AV adoption in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
