CONCURRENT SESSION (Fri): “You Can Get There from Here: Florida’s Future in Transportation”

Friday, May 26, 2017 10:30 AM – 12:00pm Salons C & D Concurrent Session

Highly walkable urban and suburban places create value for communities, however, Florida held 9 of 11 of the most dangerous metro areas for pedestrians in the entire nation in the 2016 Dangerous by Design Report. At the same time, communities across Florida are preparing for dramatic changes in how we get around. This session will highlight policy initiatives, implementation measures and design implications of the evolution of our vehicular-centric transportation system into a diversified mobility-based system of walking, biking, transit, water transport, and autonomous vehicles.
