NLC Congressional City Conference

Synopsis

Transportation is essential to every community, and it’s changing rapidly with new options, from scooters to autonomous shuttles. However, we’re losing more than 100 of our citizens’ lives a day on U.S. roads and sidewalks, and cyclist deaths are up as well. Our transportation options are also falling short of serving all neighborhoods equally with the connectivity and methods citizens want. Learn how your community can take the first steps to safer streets, use technologies and mobility as a service, and factor in equity when choosing and implementing exciting new transportation options to better serve all areas. Prominent researchers, safety experts and city representatives will lead a lively discussion on actions cities, towns, and villages can take to save lives and connect our regions.
