Message From Executive Director, Greg Stuart 

As the global urbanization trend continues, the demand for more efficient and sustainable transportation systems has never been greater. In response to this growing challenge, a new breed of entrepreneurs, policymakers, and urbanists has emerged with the shared goal of reshaping the future of mobility. CoMotion, held last week, brought together these visionaries in one place, providing a platform for them to showcase their cutting-edge solutions and exchange ideas about the urban mobility landscape. The conference, hosted at PortMiami, was a vibrant showcase of innovation, creativity, and forward thinking. Over the two-day event, CoMotion welcomed over 500 speakers, participants, and exhibitors from diverse backgrounds, including technology, design, architecture, urban planning, and public policy. This vibrant community has demonstrated that collaboration, communication, and engagement are key elements in shaping the future of mobility. One of the most exciting features of CoMotion was the live demo showcase, where participants had the opportunity to see the latest technology and solutions that are changing the face of transportation. Some of the most eye-catching innovations included a drone-based delivery system, an autonomous electric shuttle, and a car-sharing service that is accessible to anyone, anytime, anywhere. Each of these demos offered a glimpse into the future of mobility, inspiring and educating everyone in attendance. CoMotion has set the bar high for conferences that are dedicated to urban mobility. It was an inspiring, engaging, and transformative event that captured the imaginations of those who attended. With the ongoing revolution in mobility and the critical role of cities in shaping our future, CoMotion has established itself as a key gathering place for innovators and thought leaders who are creating a better urban environment for everyone.


Broward MPO Executive Director Greg Stuart Leads CoMotion Panel

The CoMotion conference program was packed with panels and keynotes from the biggest names in urban mobility innovation, including our Executive Director Greg Stuart, who joined colleagues from around the U.S. to discuss innovative planning for regional mobility. Experts shared insights into the challenges and opportunities of the evolving urban landscape, discussed new trends and technologies, and debated the policies and regulations that will shape the future of mobility. The conference has sparked lively debates on topics such as how to balance sustainability and profitability, how to ensure social equity in transportation, and how to incorporate autonomous vehicles into the current transportation ecosystem. We look forward to the next CoMotion conference in 2024!
