We look forward to a productive, provocative, and insightful day, filled with a diversity of perspectives on securing new transportation funding; then, hearing about the overall economic impact resulting from such infrastructure investment.
However, before this all begins, let's face it, today's keynote is a transportation deity like no other. She is none other than the amazing Janette Sadik-Khan. Currently the Transportation Principal for Bloomberg Associates, Sadik-Khan is the visionary who transformed New York City's Department of Transportation into a world-renowned multi-modal planning organization, and done so in only six years. Besides her role at Bloomberg, Sadik-Khan is also the Chair of "NACTO," the National Association of City Transportation Officials, and author of the bestseller, Streetfight: Handbook for an Urban Revolution, featured as TransportiCA's Book Club selection for October 2016.
We will keep you posted on all developments from the conference via our Twitter handle, @transportica.
