City congestion previously referred to traffic jams on road or highways. With more transportation options than ever and the booming delivery economy, the city streets and sidewalks are crowded and congested. New technology solutions are designed to make the lives of citizens easier, but with limited space, the competition for the curb is creating a new challenge for cities and citizens. This session will explore the opportunities created by new city technology, from scooters to grocery delivery, as well as the challenges cities face when managing crowded city streets. Can cities, corporations and citizens work together and learn how to share the curb?
