The Gamification of Transportation: How Mobile Apps and Social Media Incentives Change the Way We Travel

A Social Media Week Los Angeles Panel

Wednesday, September 24th
6:00-8:00 pm

In historically transportation challenged Los Angeles (where urban sprawl has been known to keep residents confined to their respective neighborhoods), a new breed of mobile apps and social media-enabled programs – that reward urban explorers for…well, being more mobile, and challenge commuters to choose more efficient modes of transportation – is changing how we get around town.

Join us for a SMWLA  panel discussion about the “gamification of transportation”.

Featured panelists:

Jeffrey Chernick, CEO, Ride Amigos

Robert Gard, Director of Communications and Marketing, CicLAvia

Amanda Ansell, Director of Communications, MindMixer

Moderator:

Andrea Campbell, Vice President, Consensus, Inc.
