Changing Lanes: The Future of Transportation in a Post COVID-19 Era

With a world-wide shelter in place order in effect, we have seen a decrease in traffic, travel, and use of public transportation and ride sharing apps. The transportation industry is challenged to come up with innovative solutions to navigate through the current situation, and into the “New Normal” – post COVID-19.

Our four panelists will share their current thinking on the transportation challenges that we are facing, how they’re responding and planning ahead, and what they believe the future will hold.

  • How is the transportation industry currently adjusting?
  • How can startups and corporates work together to solve some of the challenges that the industry will face in a post COVID-19 world?
  • How will the airline industry transform itself?
  • What will the role of public transportation and the ridesharing market look like?
  • Will bicycle and micro-mobility play a bigger role in how we get around?

Join us as we discuss how the current crisis will change the future of transportation.

MEET OUR MODERATOR:

  • David Li — Principal, Avanta Ventures

MEET OUR SPEAKERS:

  • Scott Santoro — Vice President, Delta Air lines
  • Sabrina Sussman — Senior Manager, Public Partnerships and Policy, Zipcar
  • Racquel Asa — Chief Marketing Officer, Beep, Inc.
