Join us on Wednesday, June 1st for an exciting episode of CoMotion LIVE! Supported by Hamburg Invest, this session focuses on the northern German city of Hamburg and Los Angeles, looking at the ways the public and private sectors in both cities work together to provide innovative and reliable transportation options for their communities.
As a leader in research, business and technology, Hamburg is home to transportation trailblazers, from the century-old HOCHBAHN metro and bus system to fully-electric ridesharing platforms that aim to optimize how people move throughout the city. What lessons can be applied to American cities, such as Los Angeles? How are public transit operators and private companies collaborating to ensure everyone has access to the emerging innovative mobility solutions today? Join us in a conversation comparing, contrasting and learning about the ways contemporary transportation systems are serving the people of Hamburg and Los Angeles.
Joining us for this discussion will be Dr. Johannes Lauer, Research Consultant, Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) at Hamburger Hochbahn; Connie Llanos, Chief of Staff and Strategy, Los Angeles Department of Transportation; Selika Josiah Talbott, Founder, Autonomous Vehicle Consulting, LLC; Sascha Meyer, Chief Product Officer, MOIA; and moderator Justine Johnson, Head of Mobility Engagement, SoCal and Southwest US, Ford Motor Company. We will also be hearing from Stefan Matz, Director of International Investments, Hamburg Invest, who will be opening the session with some welcoming remarks.
