Transportation & Communities Summit 2016 Conference

The Transportation and Communities Summit is a unique conference that connects transportation practitioners with the top researchers from across the country. Already an indispensable resource, this year’s summit offers more of everything: more breakout sessions, more posters and a new day of in-depth workshops. 

You’ll hear from the practitioners, policymakers and activists driving the discussion on topics ranging from multimodal equity to smart cities. Keynote speaker Brian David Johnson, a writer and the futurist in residence at Arizona State University, offers an inspiring take on what’s to come. Help shape the future of transportation!

Session topics include:

  • Equity in Housing: Transportation investments can improve neighborhoods but can also force out longtime residents. We'll discuss tools to combat displacement and ensure affordable housing.
    • Speakers: Dana Dickman, Christopher Coes, Jillian Detweiller, Gerardo Sandoval
    • Economic Impact: What constitutes a good return on a transportation investment? After years of only considering the benefits that accrue to motorists, our perspective has broadened. What should we count and how do we count it?
      • Speakers: Robert Liberty, Jenny Liu, Michelle Poyourow, Joe Cortright
