TRANSPORTATION NUDGES: Experiments in Improving Urban Mobility will bring together transportation demand managers, urban planners, technologists, computer scientists, government officials, behavioral economists and community and business leaders to examine innovative ways cities can nudge their way to better mobility.

Cities worldwide are experimenting with new ways to tackle congestion and improve urban mobility along with resident health and safety. Many communities are testing novel, low cost interventions to change individual behavior, “nudging” their way to fewer and slower drivers, along with more and better cyclists and transit riders. While still in the early stages, these experiments are bearing fruit. As much as Americans love their cars, individual choices – spatial, modal and temporal – can be influenced by technology, policy or low cost design interventions, yielding smarter, safer and less congested cities.

We hope you can join us for this important conversation.

Members of the press should contact Conor LeBlanc at or 617-358-8086 for more information about attending the event.

The conference is being hosted by the Boston University Initiative on Cities, the Hariri Institute for Computing & Computational Science and the Boston Mayor’s Office of New Urban Mechanics.
