As part of the conference you are also invited to participate in our Saturday workshops, where you will have a chance to roll up your sleeves and work with your colleagues on how to implement the groundbreaking ideas that inspired you during the previous days.

Luum is a data-driven commute benefits software solution that runs end-to-end employer commute programs and gives them deep insight into how their employees commute. We’ve seen the ripple effect that even the slightest positive behavior changes around the commute can have for an entire organization and, subsequently, its city. Over the past five years, our hometown of Seattle has seen its transit ridership grow (one of two cities in the country!) and boasts a downtown drive-alone rate that hovers around 25 percent.

9 Major Opportunities for Electric Buses & Trucks

You may not hear much about electric trucks and buses, but they’re here and growing. We have to put the policies and actions in place now so that we can leverage the clean air and economic benefits of this technology to fight environmental injustice and give an economic boost to people most in need.

The State of Smart Cities Down Under

The State Government sector within Australia has been slower to play a leading role in Smart City development within Australia.
