Can you imagine a room full of leaders and innovators in transportation and mobility industries from around the world? If you can then you've probably been to Transportation Camp that's been hosted by our friends at Mobility Lab since 2014, and you get an inside peek into some of our team's favorite highlights from this year's event in DC.

Winter is no longer coming, it's here... and not everyone is blessed to live by sandy beaches that don't drop below 60 degrees all year round. Those who experience winters and springs with snowfall are wondering what will become of the electric and dockless scooters and bikes?
2018 was certainly an exciting year for mobility, but what will 2019 have in store for us? The list below will answer that question with our predictions of what's going to take off in the new year.
Central Florida is a quickly growing region. In fact, it’s growing so quickly that meeting its
housing needs would require the equivalent of a new 330-unit multifamily building each week.
As part of its growth, it also has one of the country’s newest passenger rail lines – SunRail, a
47-mile commuter rail line that traverses exurban, suburban, and downtown areas. It adds a
transportation option for thousands and opens up opportunities for Central Florida to have true
transit-oriented development (TOD) to address our housing issues as well.
Was 2018 a great year for you? It certainly was for mobility. You probably didn't notice that electric scooters have been in America since 2017, or how many bikeshare companies and stations there are currently, or even how many companies are investing into getting the first autonomous vehicle on the street. Don't worry, we got the inside track.
Although there have been significant developments in zero-emission research and testing in the past few years, we still have a long way to go in making zero-emission travel mainstream. This is important not only on a global scale to reduce the impact of climate change, but also locally, for us to enjoy greener and healthier public spaces. But in order for the US to do its part, there remain several tough barriers that need to be overcome.
Don't get stuck listening to the same playlist during your commute
We have expressed many ideas about how you can make your commute better (examples here, here, and here). But, we're not going to talk about commuter benefits, perks of ditching a car, or how cities are changing to become more transit-oriented — instead, we're going to work on how your commute can be more enjoyable. Enter: podcast.
