Technology is revolutionizing transportation in America’s cities. Cities are partnering with Uber and Lyft to expand trip options. Phones have transportation applications to help people get from point A to point B. That is today but what might transportation look like in the “City of the Future?”

Panelists include:

  • Vincent Valdes, Associate Administrator of Research, Demonstration & Innovation at the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Transit Administration
  • Diana Mendes, Mid-Atlantic Division President and Transit/Rail Practice Leader of HNTB Corp.
