SACRAMENTO, Calif. — According to the experts, midsize U.S. metropolitan areas have the potential to be test beds and leaders in innovation around mobility and other smart city areas.

Thought leaders in smart cities and mobility gathered in Sacramento Thursday for a symposium titled The Next Urban Future, hosted by the nonprofit Meeting of the Minds.

“I think the opportunity here is for those medium-sized cities to kind of get ahead of the curve,” said Shaun Fernando, director of the Future Cities division at Guidehouse, a public policy consulting firm.
