FUNDING TODAY AND TOMORROW

Description

Speakers

Moderator(s)

Ballot issues and funding. The UK is thinking differently about how we advance innovation by pooling private and public resources. LAMetro recently successfully passed a $48 billion measure by inspiring the people of LA to think about the future. But first, it’s important to put a dollar amount to need on how people move.

CHOICE TODAY AND TOMORROW

Description

Speakers

Moderator(s)

A future where the same customer in one day rides the buses and calls up Uber, and the next morning carpools in a new Express Lane—and then in five years takes Hyperloop from Denver to Colorado Springs for a quick meeting. Technology innovators are creating entirely new forms of choice. But just as important as the technology is the regulatory environment to enable choice. Colorado is forward leaning on how we look at enabling the future of technology. How do we plan for it? How do we build it? Dan Katz

CONNECTION TODAY AND TOMORROW

Description

Speakers

Moderator(s)

Historically, transportation has connected us through asphalt, concrete, cars, trucks, buses and rail. Today, that is changing. Data is the new asphalt and it is time to build the Internet of Vehicles. That is happening in Australia and here in Colorado, whether through connected vehicle ecosystems or smart traffic management. And investment isn’t just with infrastructure. Can transportation agencies hire the needed data analysts and can industry that is known for hierarchy and moving more slowly prepare for the rapid change in its role as well as the shifting workforce and new expectations in how people work?

SUSTAINABLE TODAY AND TOMORROW

Description

Speakers

Moderator(s)

Volvo has said by 2019 they will stop production of gas only cars. Britain and China plan to ban gas vehicles in the next twenty years. How is transportation infrastructure ready for this future? Thanks to Volkswagen, we can get ready for it today. And Colorado has plans for our Electric Vehicle future. But are there more options than electric charging stations. What if a vehicle was powered from the road? Andrew Duvall
