The CoMotion Mobility Podcast, Pt. 2

LA CoMotion 2018 is in the books — more on that above and soon — but earlier this fall, I hosted a series of podcasts published in tandem with the event’s weekly newsletter. I’ve published a small selection here for posterity, including:

• LADOT general manager Seleta Reynolds (embedded above), who spoke about the LA City Council’s decision to legalize the so-called “scooter menace” and who intends to keep a handle on thousands of scooters through the “mobility data specification,” a data standard defined by her office.

• Moovel North America CEO Nat Parker (below), who chatted about mobility-as-a-service and the need for open standards and APIs versus Uber’s, Lyft’s, etc. vertically-integrated walled gardens.

• Transdev North America CEO Yann Leriche (second below), who covered a lot of ground but described his company’s efforts at creating bespoke autonomous solutions (such as an AV schoolbus) for the master-planned suburban community of Babcock Ranch, Florida.

• Lyft senior director of transportation policy Lilly Shoup (bottom), who talked about the company’s scooter launch in Santa Monica and gamely responded to my charge that Lyft was ultimately detrimental to cities.

Please give them a listen.
