America’s Workforce and the Self-Driving Future

As the U.S. stands on the precipice of a transportation technology revolution, now is the time to explore both the benefits and impacts of AVs on the economy, consumers and the workforce. Will AV technology result in labor displacement? What will be the magnitude of these impacts? How can we measure the economic benefits, and what can be done now to maximize these gains while mitigating dislocations?

SAFE’s policy brief, America’s Workforce and the Self-Driving Future: Realizing Productivity Gains and Spurring Economic Growth, developed in collaboration with leading transportation and labor economists, examines some of the most important questions that have been raised as AVs move from concept to reality.
For a comprehensive view of the policy brief and the economists’ reports that informed it, please visit America’s Workforce and the Self-Driving Future.
