This document summarizes Socioeconomic Impacts of Automated and Connected Vehicles, a symposium  held  June  26–27,  2018,  at  the  Hotel  NH  Brussels  Bloom  in  Brussels,  Belgium.  Hosted  by  the  European Commission and the Transportation Research Board  (TRB)  of  the  National  Academies  of  Sciences,  Engineering, and Medicine (the Academies), it was the sixth  annual  symposium  sponsored  by  the  European  Commission and the United States. The goals of these symposia are to promote common understanding, efficiencies,  and  trans-Atlantic  cooperation  within  the  international transportation research community while accelerating transport-sector innovation in the European Union and the United States. The 2-day  invitation-only  symposium  brought  together high-level experts to share their views on the socio economic impacts of connected and automated vehicles and shared mobility (CAVSM). With the aim of fostering trans-Atlantic collaboration in research and deployment,  symposium  participants  discussed  challenges and opportunities arising from the diffusion of CAVSM and innovative approaches to mitigate any negative socioeconomic impacts.
