Transport Futures Solving Gridlock Forum
Date: Monday, June 16, 2014
Double Tree by Hilton Hotel, 108 Chestnut Street, Toronto
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!
