In the last four years Boston has added as many residents as it did in the previous twenty. This growth has brought many opportunities, and has also highlighted the challenges urban centers face, none more evident than transportation. If we want a strong economy we must have a strong transportation network, and commute time is the single most important factor to upward mobility. The City is working on bold initiatives to transform our transportation system. From driverless cars to public transportation, what does it all mean, when is it going to happen, and who are the companies at the forefront leading this change? Join us to hear the vision and the opportunities and challenges facing the future of transportation in and around the city.
