Flipping the Bird!: How we Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the E-scooter (and Other Disruptive Transit)
A KCRW/DnA x IndieCade design jam on e-Scooters and the future of mobility
Saturday October 13th, from 12-2 pm, in classrooms 216 at the Center for Media and Design
Dockless e-scooters have presented the biggest disruption to transportation since ridesharing.
Yet they also have huge potential -- to resolve the first mile, last mile challenge; to transport people to work and school; and to bring the fun back into mobility that has diminished as traffic congestion has grown.
Many cities have been resistant to e-scooters. What would urban life look like if they were fully embraced?
And how about the other disruptors?
While dockless e-scooters are the most recent and provocative of the tech-driven, private sector transportation solutions to enter the civic realm, others are barreling towards us -- think heli-taxis, drones, autonomous vehicles and maybe even the hyperloop.
How will these transit innovations change our lives and the form of the city?
