After a brief update from CALSTART Policy Director, Meredith Alexander, about the California $100 stimulus package and what is could mean for our industry, we turned our focus to innovations in the transit and autonomous vehicles space. Maureen Marshall, CALSTART’s Midwest Regional Office with Regional Director, gave an overview of the Connected and Autonomous Transit Forum cohort and then had a discussion with Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority’s Chief Innovation & Technology Officer, Gary Miskell, about autonomous transit advancements. Hosts Bill Van Amburg and Alycia Gilde had a discussion with New Flyer Industry’s Director of Sustainable Transportation, David Warren, on transformations in the transit industry and New Flyer’s Vehicle Innovation Center.
