Join ULI San Antonio on November 13 at Pearl Stable for the next  Leadership Luncheon about The Future of Mobility.

The way people move around the city is primed for dramatic change. Already, shared ride services and dockless bikes and scooters have changed traditional mobility patterns.   Technological innovations in the form of electrification, connectivity, and driverless vehicles are also on the horizon. The resulting new mobility ecosystem will have wide-reaching impacts that span a host of industries and players. While change is imminent, new opportunities will continue to emerge and expand.

What will the future of urban mobility look like and how does San Antonio get there? What roles will the public and private sectors have to play to pave the way? What are the implications for new and existing developments? Don’t miss the opportunity to learn more about this timely topic.
