Join us at the 11th annual Transportation and Communities Summit 2019 (see full schedule)! This annual event at Portland State University (PSU) in Portland, Oregon connects national mobility-focused research to local practice through breakout panel presentations, PechaKucha, posters, and networking between academics and practitioners.
The conference will center around three themes: Intersection of Transportation and Housing / Land Use; New Mobility in Active Transportation; and Multimodal Data: Collecting, Processing, Analyzing, and Using.
This year we’re excited to welcome our keynote Ben Wellington—a data scientist and policy analyst from New York, NY. The founder of I Quant NY, his data analysis has influenced local government policy including changes in NYC street infrastructure, the way New Yorkers pay for cabs and the design of NYC subway vending machines, and his talk on urban data was featured on TEDTalks. He is a contributor to The New Yorker, and a Visiting Assistant Professor in the City & Regional Planning program at The Pratt Institute in Brooklyn.
