See a self-driving Uber up close at the Western Pa. Mobility Showcase

From ride share to bike share and electric vehicles to autonomous vehicles, the Western Pa. Mobility Showcase will display the different ways transportation is changing. Plus, it’s your chance to see a self-driving car up close.
The showcase, a new event created by the city’s Department of Mobility and Infrastructure, is on Thursday, and it’s open to the public with more than 20 exhibits. Think of it as a mobility trade show where you can pick up new ideas about getting from point A to point B.
There will be familiar companies like Uber and Lyft as well as lesser-known companies that could become household names within five years, said Justin Miller, principal transportation planner in the city department…
Other displays will feature Zipcar, Pittsburgh Transportation Group, which manages zTrip and SuperShuttle, and Traffic21, the transportation research institute at Carnegie Mellon University.
