ReImagining Mobility: Designing a zero commuting future




ReImagining Mobility: Designing Zero-Commuting Cities is an event welcoming thought leaders in transportation, urban planning, and policy and decision making to address the latest challenges and opportunities in urban mobility. Leadership from Mubil and the MIT City Science team will present on topics related to high-performing walkable districts, autonomous micro-mobility solutions,  mobility simulations, and the challenges of mobility in informal regions. Participants will take inspiration to reimagine the current and proposed mobility systems in Gipuzkoa, as well as the region’s access to amenities and walkability.

MUBIL offers a shared commitment which seeks to turn Gipuzkoa and the Basque Country into global industry reference points in new mobility. This is a MUBIL event and the MIT City Science team is the featured guest.

12:00pm to 2:00pm CET 

Coordinated by MIT City Science:

The MIT City Science team will work with representatives of the MUBIL ecosystem to propose new lightweight mobility modes and systems that enable more livable and human-centric communities.  Workshop participants will work in four tracks:

Workshop participants will be led through a brainstorming process led by MIT City Science team members and Mubil leadership to determine creative new solutions and systems with potential impact in the Basque country, in Europe, and beyond.

  • Multi-functional and transformable vehicle design
  • Agile fleets with lightweight infrastructure
  • Data-based systems 
  • Walkable districts
