    Over the summer, people began going back to the office, in-person shopping and dining in steadily increasing numbers...

    after these few months of transition, how have our habits changed? Will pre-pandemic trends in parking and mobility solutions – everything from ride share to scooter rentals – continue to change the commercial real estate practice in DFW? How are developers, municipalities, and designers innovating to meet a changing demand mix for transportation solutions? What is the latest ULI research on the subject?

    For decades, ULI has led the national conversation around parking reform and micro-mobility solutions. Hear from ULI’s Building Healthy Places program and the City of Dallas as they discuss the latest in parking innovation, reducing traffic with micro-mobility, and new research that will help inform future CRE decision-making, including ULI’s new “Parking Policy Innovations in the United States” interactive database and “Small Vehicles, Big Impact: Micromobility’s Value for Cities and Real Estate” report.
