How Will Pandemics Impact Transportation Innovation?

    A recording of the webinar is available online. 

    In this virtual meeting, our discussion will focus on how transportation innovation and policies may be impacted by pandemics like COVID-19.

    Even before the pandemic, urban and metropolitan transportation systems were being stretched to the breaking point. Congestion, long commutes, and crumbling infrastructure were common complaints for commuters. As people are permitted to return to work in their offices, what transportation will they use to get there? Will they be willing to go given the limited transportation options currently available? Any solutions to these issues will have logistic, capital, and labor implications for companies and policymakers trying to address this changing environment.

    Please join our panelists from the technology and government sectors as they discuss how our future world of transportation might look.
