About: 

In order to resolve the GTHA’s congestion conundrum, separate the truth from the public relations propaganda, select the most cost-effective projects and increase citizen support, Transport Futures invites you to our Solving Gridlock Forum where we will:

  • debate whether the addition of new transit and roads alone can decrease traffic congestion and also learn about new mitigation approaches;
  • consider integrated transportation decision-making frameworks that enable politicians, planners and the public to make evidence-based infrastructure choices while fast-tracking approvals and financing;
  • discuss infrastructure and TDM communication strategies that can gain backing from politicians, key stakeholders and the public.

Our confirmed speakers include:

  • Joseph Berechman, The Marvin Kristein Professor of Economics, The City University of New York, NYC, USA
  • Jane Hayse, Director, Center for Livable Cities, Atlanta Regional Commission, Atlanta, USA
  • Todd Litman, Director, Victoria Transport Policy Institute, Victoria, Canada
  • Robin Lindsey, CN Chair in Transportation and International Logistics, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada
  • Matthew Turner, Professor, Department of Economics, University of Toronto, Toronto, Canada
  • … and more experts will be announced soon!

As detailed in the interactive agenda, the Solving Gridlock Forum includes nine cutting edge presentations and panels along with ample time for Q&A and networking. Seating is limited so take advantage of early bird rates and register today!
