View, experience and discuss some of the most innovative means of transportation in the world today! Meet the inventors and experience futuristic concept vehicles.
See what our transportation options will be over the next decade — from fuel cell vehicles to taxi rickshaws
to Segway scooters to human-powered transport. A wide variety of refreshments will be available on-site
so plan to make a day (or three) of it.
Friday and Saturday on Boston City Hall Plaza
Sunday on the hillside lawn of the Larz Anderson Auto Museum, Brookline.
The exhibits feature a show of all types of alternate vehicles including bikes, the segway, electric scooters, alternative passenger vehicles, alternative fleet delivery vehicles, special vehicles that are solar powered, electric vehicles, vehicles that run on used vegetable oil (both BBQ and Chinese), CNG vehicles, leading hybrids, vintage cars, and mini-cars.
The AltWheels lawn show and the Larz Anderson Museum provides a chance to talk with owners of a vehicle, in some cases to test drive a vehicle, and to vote for your favorites in a number of categories.
The AltWheels festival will feature workshops on Fuel Cells, on Vehicle Design, on Creating Art Cars, and on fuel efficiency and government policies. All workshops will take place outdoors weather permitting.

I'll probably attending the lectures on Sunday at the Museum of Science.
I've uploaded a full list of the MOS lectures with the speakers.
NOTE: these lectures are on the 16th and 17th.
