CHICAGO — The next mayor should have a chief mobility officer to handle issues like ride-share regulation and self-driving cars, according to recommendations issued by a mobility task force created by Mayor Rahm Emanuel, reported The Chicago Tribune.

Other recommendations from the task force's report include, a pilot program for electric scooters, and an increase in the state gas tax.

The mobility task force, chaired by former U.S. DOT Secretary Ray LaHood, includes academics, government officials, and members of the private sector. For the full story, click here.
