Over the past several years, the emergence of new technologies impacting all travel modes including public transportation has garnered significant attention across the spectrum of interests, from the research and technology communities to the transportation planning and policy communities to the public, media, and political communities. This awareness and interest is evidenced by extensive media coverage and growing speculation on the implications on everything from roadway safety to the fate of traditional auto manufacturers to the consequences for mobility, the environment, land use patterns, and the economy. Included in the list of potential consequences is the issue of the future of public transportation. This paper, “Implications to Public Transportation of Emerging Technologies”, follows up on a white paper authored in late 2013 titled “Implications to Public Transportation of Autonomous or Connected Vehicles.” It updates thinking based on activities to date and specifically delves into how the public transportation industry might be impacted and could respond to this issue.
