The global event is attracting civic leaders and public transit representatives from around the world. They’ll share what works and what doesn’t when it comes to introducing car sharing as public policy framework, while car sharing companies will share service quality experiences.
There will also be discussion on more sustainable vehicle options, such as electric cars, bikes, and scooters.
