Earlier this year Jeremy Finkleman, a Community Planner in Vancouver, developed an online survey to collect data on people’s perceptions of how autonomous vehicles may impact their lives. Survey questions were framed to provide insights on AV implications on willingness to travel longer distances, land use, impacts on vehicle kilometres travelled (VKT), parking, multi-modality (including willingness to use transit in an AV-dominant system), and opportunities for vehicle reduction. Jeremy’s presentation will share some of the key insights gathered from the survey and suggest next steps municipalities and agencies could take to ensure they are planning proactively for this seismic shift to the transportation network.

On Thursday September 6, Jeremy will be presenting his findings from the survey at the main branch of the Vancouver Public Library at the GVITE Lunch Meeting. Register for the event here.
