Automated vehicles (AVs) are rapidly emerging as a transformative technology that will revolutionize transportation and mobility in San Mateo County. That’s why it’s important to create a strategic plan for the path forward while AVs are still in their early development stages.
With that in mind, local transportation experts and leaders will host a virtual public workshop to help gather thoughts and ideas from the community on how best to move forward with important aspects of the strategic plan.
- What: Automated Vehicles Virtual Public Workshop
- Who: San Mateo County Transportation Authority (TA), in partnership with the City and County Association of Governments of San Mateo County (C/CAG)
- Where: Zoom (Register here)
- When: Wednesday, Nov. 15, at 6:00 p.m.
The workshop will include an overview of the project, information on practical AV applications, goal setting, and a request for feedback on a draft vision statement. The plan itself will include strategies and recommendations for AV pilot programs and activities.
The TA and C/CAG value community feedback and want to hear your thoughts about this important issue that will affect transportation of all forms, including personal vehicles, shuttles, transit, freight, delivery, and so much more.
