Hello Members and Friends of the Major Cities Committee,
will have our next committee meeting in person at the NACTO Designing
Cities conference over lunch on Wednesday. There will be call-in
capabilities for those not attending in person.
Wednesday, September 11, 12:15-1:15pm
NACTO Designing Cities Conference - Sheraton Hall E (lunch will be provided!)
major topic of discussion will be the strategic realignment and
committee restructuring effort TRB has undertaken - please review the
attached materials in advance if you are able. There is additional information here
, including a survey about the proposal that closes on 9/15.
A couple other items to share with the committee while I have your attention:
1. TRB's new Joint Subcommittee on Equity in Transportation now has a website to follow their activities: https://sites.google.com/view/equityjsc
In addition to providing updates and announcements for upcoming
meetings and conferences, this website is intended to serve as a
resource that contains past, current, and future research related to
equity in transportation. Use this form
to sign up as a member of the subcommittee (also found on the website).
Emerging Transport Advisors, founded by one of our members, has just
launched their first global survey on emerging mobility trends for
cities covering the key topics of shared mobility, micro-mobility,
curb/kerb space management, electric vehicles, mobility data management,
emerging mobility staff capacity needs, and automated and commercial
vehicle trends. They are looking to hear from as many cities across the
globe over the next few weeks to create a broad representative baseline.
The survey is here
and open until September 20th.
Hope to see some of you in person in Toronto shortly, and hear many of you on the line on Wednesday.
