Innovations in Transit and Transportation

New Special Report:Innovations in Transit and Transportation

Emerging technologies have accelerated new forms of transportation in major cities across the country. While e-bikes and e-scooters have become well-recognized features of the urban landscape, other innovations in transit are on the way.

This special report takes a look at the creative projects and new approaches taken by states, cities, and counties to improve transportation networks and transit opportunities.

What's Inside This Special Report:

  • Here Come the Electrics. Could E-Bikes Be the Electric Revolution?
    Electric bikes are poised to take off, even outpacing electric car adoption. But, as with all efforts to promote alternatives to driving, city leaders would need to make infrastructure changes.

  • Moving Toward Taxing Motorists by the Mile
    Nevada will begin collecting odometer readings from drivers this fall, the first step of determining whether a “pay by mile” tax policy would work in the state.

  • Scoot Aside E-Scooters, Rental Mopeds Are Zooming In
    Cities involved in the pilot say the mopeds will provide an environmentally-friendly and affordable option for commuters. Some are worried about the safety implications, though.
