Transportation in the Next American City
Investments in transportation have long been synonymous with economic growth and job creation. While this was often the case in the early days of highway building, that correlation is no longer guaranteed, especially at the local level. With road maintenance liabilities overwhelming federal, state and local budgets, America needs a more strategic approach to transportation, one that allows us to get more while spending less and living better. As our cities continue to evolve and modernize, such a transformed transportation system is possible. This presentation will challenge conventional thinking and chart a path to the next transportation revolution.
