The Future of Transit & Carpooling

Thursday, April 2, 2020
Regional Plan Association, One Whitehall St, New York, NY 10004

Transportation is the backbone of the region’s economy, critical to the quality of life for those who live and work here. Years of population and job growth and under-investment in our transportation infrastructure have led to congestion, lack of reliability and major disruptions regularly. Yet finding a way to get around that is both low-cost and environmentally-friendly can be a challenge in cities and towns around the country. We are delighted to be joined by Dani Simons, Head of Public Sector Partnerships at Waze for a discussion about how carpooling can support our transit needs. Dani’s presentation will be followed by a conversation with RPA’s Senior Transportation Fellow Rachel Weinberger.
