One of the biggest puzzles for public transit organizations usually isn't how to get people from one bus stop or train station to the next: it's how to get them all the way home. In a matter of months, electric scooters have taken over metro-Atlanta. eScooters have the potential to be a green solution, to ease congestion, to create connections between MARTA stations and to be a more equitable urban transportation option, but with this burgeoning micro-economy comes risk. In this panel presented by the Atlanta Business Chronicle, subject matter experts will explore how metro-Atlanta is navigating the rise of the electric scooter. 

Panelists: 
Kevin Green, President and CEO, Midtown Alliance
Tim Keane, Commissioner, Department of City Planning, City of Atlanta, GA USA 
Ashley N. Scott, Policy Counsel, Lime 
Hunter Richardson, Executive Vice President, Development, Portman Holdings

Moderator: Doug Sams, Commercial Real Estate Reporter, Atlanta Business Chronicle
