New Chicago Task Force Report Has Guidelines for Shared Mobility and AV Policy

Streetsblog Chicago

Many Chicagoans would argue that Rahm Emanuel has been pushing hard for the approval of some dubious projects before leaving office, including the $6 billion Lincoln Yards development, the $95 million West Side police and fire academy, and Elon Musk’s (supposedly) $1 billion O’Hare Express scheme. But Emanuel did a solid for the next administration by being proactive about policy challenges that will likely arise in a future where shared mobility and autonomous vehicle technology become increasing dominant forces in society. In September, the mayor announced the creation of a new transportation and mobility task force headed by Ray LaHood, Barack Obama’s former U.S. Department of Transportation secretary.  CNT's Jacky Grimshaw and CNT Board member Stefan Gspurning are a part of this task force, which seeks to set the city on the right path towards seriously analyzing shared-mobility and autonomous vehicle issues that promise to become critical in the coming years.
