Growth in electric vehicle usage will create demand for new vehicle-powering support infrastructure and make existing infrastructure obsolete. The advent of autonomous vehicles may increase automobile trip-making and competition with public transit, while reducing parking demand. What should developers, planners, and local officials be thinking about and doing right now to prepare for this future?
