Join Our Upcoming Webinar on January 19th

Pedestrian deaths are rising, cars, SUVs, and light trucks are getting bigger, there has never been more money for infrastructure, and more DOT’s are claiming they ‘get it.” What does it all mean for 2023? Are we regressing, turning the tide, or even progressing? We are joined by innovative transportation professional Janette Sadik-Khan, and leading transportation journalist David Zipper to break down where we have been and where we are going in the world of transportation, equity – and yes – walkability.
