Dan Patterson: Regarding digital transformation, what trends do you see in transportation, both in transportation providers and with cities, planning, infrastructure, and other organizations related to transportation?
Tom Kirschbaum: We believe cities will take back purpose, setting frameworks for a sustainable, efficient, approachable, and safe transportation network. The liberal markets won't prevail; mobility is at the core of life. Policy will set a certain framework. Since cities won't develop the technology for framework, it will be interesting to see which strategy prevails.
