Electric cars. Bike shares. Scooters. What could be next in the realm of urban mobility?

That’s the big question at CoMotion LA, a two-day conference where 2,000 global leaders of the mobility revolution will gather to explore new policy and innovation mandates for a more connected, innovative, and sustainable urban future. Now in its third year, the event will take place on Thursday, November 14, and Friday, November 15, at ROW DTLA.

The speaker lineup is set to include Mayor Eric Garcetti, LADOT general manager Seleta Reynolds, Moovit CEO and co-founder Nir Erez, Lyft’s senior director of policy and partnerships Lilly Shoup, and many more. See the full schedule of events.

Plus, don’t miss Curbed’s own urbanism editor, Alissa Walker, as she moderates a fireside chat with California state Sen. Scott Wiener at 10 a.m. on Friday. Later that afternoon, at 3 p.m., she will host a Curbside Charette, which is open to the public. In this interactive session, attendees will brainstorm all the ways LA could close local streets to cars.

Another must-see? The world’s first new mobility corridor, which will run for nearly a mile down Alameda Street. The corridor—presented in partnership with LADOT—will allow people to use a wide variety of new mobility vehicles in a real city setting, with cross traffic and pedestrians.
