MEDIA ADVISORY: City to Host Western PA Mobility Showcase on January 4

PITTSBURGH, PA (December 28, 2017) - The City of Pittsburgh Department of Mobility and Infrastructure (DOMI) will host the Western PA Mobility Showcase on Thursday, January 4, 2018.  

The public is invited to the City of Pittsburgh's Western PA Mobility Showcase to explore the wide range of mobility services and systems that are emerging across North America and beyond. The Showcase will be open to the public, free of charge, on Thursday, January 4, 2018 from 12 noon to 2pm and 5pm to 7pm at Alumni Hall at the University of Pittsburgh (4227 Fifth Ave). 

As described by DOMI Director Karina Ricks, "transportation is radically changing. New choices in travel and new technologies make it cleaner and more convenient than ever. New innovations make headlines every week – many of them originating from our own Southwestern Pennsylvania researchers and industries." 

"Technologies to be showcased include mobile applications for trip planning and ride sharing, various public and private transit solutions, autonomous vehicle applications, bicycle systems and services, and more. Mobility is rapidly evolving, and it’s vital that we keep our region’s residents informed about the options available to them now, and the ones that will be coming to them soon," added Director Ricks.
