Transit Trends Episode 9: Shared Mobility and the Environment

Posted by Infra on Monday, January 2nd, 2017

Our climate, both environmentally and politically speaking, is a hot topic today and one we’ve possibly learned to avoid among certain groups of friends.

Transportation is now the number one contributor to climate emissions. So while we were in Chicago for the Shared Mobility Summit that the Shared-Use Mobility Center puts on every year, we met up with Kristen Pawling to discuss how shared mobility and technology plays a role in improving our emissions. Kristen is the Los Angeles Urban Solutions Coordinator for the Natural Resources Defense Council.

A lot could change over the next few months and years as President-Elect Donald Trump takes office. President Barack Obama has made strides in setting climate goals for the United States, which Trump says he will examine to determine his stance on those goals and policies.

In the meantime, we’d like to know what you do in your daily life to reduce your carbon footprint. Please leave a comment below and help us get more people talking about mobility and our environment by sharing this video on your social networking channels, blogs, newsletters and other professional channels.
