Cities on the Move

We are thrilled to announce that the third edition of ‘Cities on the Move’ will take place November 4, 2016 in Tokyo, Japan.

Cities everywhere are on the cusp of an urban mobility revolution — a profound transformation that will affect billions of urban citizens around the world.  What will our commute look likein twenty years? How will our parents and grandparents get around the future city? Who is failed by our current transport system? Are privately owned cars becoming obsolete? What will become of parking garages?

These are a few of the questions that keep urban mobility stakeholders up at night. New technologies and the potential they unleash make this one of the most exciting, yet challenging, moments to think about why and how we will move in the future city.

Following two successful events in Mountain View, CA (2014) and London (2015), we are thrilled to once again assemble about 150 of the most insightful voices from policy, industry, design, technology, architecture, economics and sociology, and from all regions to explore the many facets and changing nature of urban mobility.

The 2016 edition is organized by the New Cities Foundation with support from X (formerly GoogleX) and Toyota Mobility Foundation.
