We convened on Wednesday, February 10 for a can’t-miss episode of CoMotion LIVE: New Administration, New Priorities: The Transportation Infrastructure That Will Power the Roaring Twenties.
With the Biden administration taking the reins in Washington, it’s safe to say the next few years are going to look markedly different in terms of transportation, transit and infrastructure priorities. The dynamic duo at DOT, Secretary Pete Buttigieg and Deputy Secretary Polly Trottenberg (formerly NYC DOT Commissioner,) are sure to champion pro-mobility causes. But which sorts of projects – congestion pricing, high speed rail, highways, transit operations – can we expect to see the biggest boon in the years to come?
We brought together a wide-array of experts to speak to all sides of these issues: Sarah Kaufman, Associate Director, NYU Rudin Center for Transportation; Paul Salama, Co-Founder & COO of road-pricing startup ClearRoad; David Cameron, Assistant to the Director, Teamsters Rail Conference, and Officer at Large, APTA High-Speed & Intercity Passenger Rail Committee, and Andrew Liu, Senior Vice President, Director of Growth, US West Transportation at AECOM.
