Come join the Advanced Transit Association (ATRA) as we host Technix 2016.Technix’s theme for 2016 will be Envision Automated Transit (EAT). EAT will be a continuation of the Envisioning Automated Vehicles within the Built Environment 2020 2035 2050 workshops held at the past two Automated Vehicle Symposiums hosted by TRB and AUVSI. These workshops brought together planners, engineers, architects, technologists and researchers to redesign the built environment with automated vehicles. Participants were introduced to automated vehicles and given pathways on the development of automated vehicles. Participants in groups led by scenario discussion leaders were assigned scenarios and sites to design around. EAT will be very similar to that past two workshops, but with an emphasis on automated transit– how is transit being redefined?


The Annual ATRA business meeting will follow EAT for ATRA members only.

General Registration $50
