Lessons Learned in Transportation Scenario Planning

September 11, 2019 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm



State and city transportation managers are invited to a TRB webinar on Wednesday, September 11, 2019, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET. The webinar will provide an overview of the Massachusetts’ Commission on the Future of Transportation Commonwealth findings and what these insights mean for other states and cities and how they plan around future forces in transportation. The Commission considered forces similar to those described in NCHRP Report 750, the Foresight Series, and worked to update the facts and trends in that series, as well as the role played by scenario development and planning during the process. This webinar includes a discussion about the Commission with the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) by Commission members and the consultant team that supported the effort. Presenters will go over the lessons learned through the Commission and offer a resource and model that will assist city and state departments of transportations in examining future disruptions – and current responses to them – in their transportation systems.
