The First ever

shared-use mobility summit in miami-dade

Building on the success of summits in Los Angeles and Denver, Live.Ride.Share.Miami will bring together local and national transportation and mobility leaders to discuss the future of mobility in South Florida.

Around the world, new technologies and new mobility options are colliding with new ideas for the future of cities. People are demanding sustainable systems and a richer quality of life, in the urban core and beyond. The fabric of our cities is changing, and it’s only going to accelerate.

What does that mean for us and how we get around in Miami-Dade? How can our community become a national leader in mobility innovation?

Panelists from cities on the cutting edge will discuss successful strategies and new opportunities. Local leaders will discuss where Miami-Dade can jump ahead. And all of us will work together in participatory exercises to develop ideas.  

It can often feel like we’re only talking about where we are, and not where we should be going. Live.Ride.Share.Miami is about the future, and how we build it together.

See you there!

The Live Ride Share summit is an annual conference hosted by different cities each year, in partnership with the National Resources Defense Council.  Miami-Dade County, in partnership with WhereBy.Us and The New Tropic, is bringing the conference to Miami for 2017. We will hear from experts in this field from around the country as well as local leaders and advocates.
