25th Annual Congress for the New Urbanism

May 3, 2017
11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Erin Talkington, Vice President

These days, we almost take for granted a sustained effort to challenge the status quo of transportation planning and design. New ideas are being minted all the time, and, at least in our large to mid-size cities, traffic engineering departments are getting wise to the benefits encouraging more active modes of transportation. This session highlights new thinking and new approaches in transportation planning, including ways to accelerate the implementation of bicycle boulevards, to employ new interactive tools for better street design at all scales, and to characterize cycling types and their influence on the built environment.

Presenters will also examine once far-off transportation concepts, such as autonomous vehicles, urban gondolas, and integrated mobility hubs. This session fundamentally challenges how we get around now and into the 21st century, and what opportunities new technologies and new thinking creates.
