Business Insider’s virtual event IGNITION: Transportation will convene business leaders, policymakers, technologists and innovators to discuss the future of mobility.
The COVID-19 pandemic has thrust transportation into uncharted territory. With the world facing the prospect of recession, flights that are empty or grounded, ride-sharing stalled – the very essence of mobility has been compromised. As companies and institutions adapt to remote working and learning, it’s possible that this will flourish and become the new normal, cutting commutes and reliance on transit.
