The field of transportation has never evolved as quickly and dynamically as it is right now. Automated vehicles, ride-hailing, e-bikes, car sharing and innovations yet to come are transforming the way Americans get around.
These evolutions could radically expand access to opportunity for people of all walks of life—or they can reinforce existing systems of inequality and exclusion. Public policy will play a crucial role in deciding which way our communities go.
These questions will be the focus of Capital Ideas 2018, Transportation for America’s conference for state policymakers to discuss ways to deliver transportation systems that address people’s needs no matter how they travel, and builds economically vibrant communities that can compete for talent.
The theme of this year’s conference is The States’ Role in New Mobility, and the agenda will focus on questions state transportation leaders should consider in the midst of ongoing changes in the transportation marketplace. As in years past, the event will bring together state and local elected officials, policymakers, advocates, chambers of commerce, foundations, universities, think tanks, and industry leaders from across the country under one roof.
Join us on December 5 and 6, 2018 in Atlanta, GA to learn how to make sure transportation innovations create more connected, equitable, and prosperous communities in your state. We look forward to seeing you there.
