The Road Ahead 2019: The Smart Traveler

Mobility used to be about access to the family car. Today, with more options and technology tools, the smart phone is becoming our access to mobility. Knowing what options are within your reach and evaluating these options based on cost, time and sometimes environmental impact is making travelers wiser and more efficient about their choices.  The Road Ahead brings key policy experts together with community members, elected officials, policy makers, private developers, and transportation industry leaders. The presentations elicit animated dialog from panelists and audience members who have a passion for transportation solutions.
