Experts discuss how technology, policy and transportation interact, and how they can be used to develop a city that functions better for all communities.

How do we best bring changing technologies in transportation into operation, while also balancing this with the need to build more walkable, bikeable and transit-friendly cities? What does a city need to look like to accommodate new modes, and what policies should be put in place to get there? Join the Kinder Institute and the Rice Initiative in Technology, Culture and Society for a panel discussion on the future of urban transportation in Houston and other cities.
