Talking Headways: A Streetsblog Podcast

This week we’re at the Shared Use Mobility Summit in Chicago listening to a keynote speech from Zipcar Co-Founder Robin Chase.  Robin talks about her ideas on the brave new world of shared mobility services and autonomous vehicles.  She discusses how autonomous vehicles could be heaven by making space for more active transportation like biking and walking or a hell where we are just swapping out everyone’s cars for a driverless version and continuing existing policies.
