    Event Description:

    Mention driverless cars and many people start humming The Jetson's cartoon theme song. But what was once a futuristic fantasy is undeniably on our doorstep. We may never zip around in mini spaceships but transportation experts predict that autonomous vehicles will be ubiquitous in as few as 10 years. If that happens, we have questions. Lots of questions.

    • Will homes even need garages? 
    • And what about parking garages?
    • What street and neighborhood design modifications will be needed? 
    • Will the industry need to shift marketing strategies?
    • Will the prospect of a less stressful commute drive people to choose housing in areas where they might not have looked before? 
    • How will home builders cope during the transition between the current reliance on personal car ownership and the autonomous fleet model?

    Come hear transportation economics expert Dr. Jon Haveman share his views on these questions and many more.
