Join the founder of Spin and Oakland's policy director to discuss the future of shared mobility

Rideshare, scooters, and other shared mobility have brought convenience to millions of users. However, many of these companies have been under heavy scrutiny from state and city regulators, from city level scooter bans to the AB-5 bill for ridershare companies. Where does shared mobility fit in as part of a city's transportation ecosystem in the future? How can mobility companies and policy makers come together to make that happen?
