Virtual: 2020 Northeast Multimodal Transit Summit, November 23, 11am - 7:30pm EDT
Event Description

Announcement – The Nov 23rd summit sessions will be online, with the exception of the morning outdoor walk audit.

As we recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, we are working together to ensure that our transportation systems and development are more sustainable, resilient and equitable.

The 2020 Summit is scheduled for Nov 23rd from 11:00 am to 7:30 pm EST to reach transportation professionals, while also reaching non-professionals that we need to keep informed and engaged to move multimodal topics into daily conversations, policy changes, and state legislation. Multimodal transportation builds connections and increases mobility while preserving a world to pass on to future generations.

The annual Summit brings together local leaders, state legislators, transportation professionals, planners, engineers, construction firms, developers, students, and passionate citizen advocates to discuss the current state, known challenges, and the best future for the region’s transportation system. The Summit includes APA, ITE, and CCMO professional development credits to keep planners, civil and transportation engineers, and municipal staff well informed and certified.

Contact Tony Cherolis (or call 860-204-2704) if you have any questions.
