New York’s transit systems were hit especially hard during the pandemic. There were also more cars, bikes and scooters on the road and massive improvements were made to existing systems. The pandemic gave us a chance to re-examine and enhance transportation systems across the city and state. This event will bring together experts across sectors to assess the current state of New York’s transportation systems, break down recent legislative actions, and look towards the future of all things coming and going in New York.

Reimagining New York’s Transit Systems
Smart new technology has been improving the transit system over the years, and we have alternative methods like e-bikes and scooters being used even more frequently and regularly since the pandemic has come into the picture. The new link from Grand Central to LIRR will drastically change the lives of many New Yorkers. What are other new public-private projects in the works and what does the future of NY's public transit look like?
Building Towards a Safer and More Secure Future
Although many people are still working from home, for those commuting, traffic, cycling and also public safety issues - are driving a reluctance to return full time in some cases. With this, the city has put forth many policies to improve the safety including adding more police to subway stations, protecting cycle lanes, and most notably Vision Zero. Our panel will assess the success and what can be done for the future of these efforts and what new ideas are being put forth.

What are the Most Innovative Transportation Projects Happening in New York
Innovation, representing new processes, materials, methods, technologies, and tools, are vital for Departments of Transportation to improve results and outcomes. What are the newest ways to help promote and support innovation to develop better ways of planning, designing, building and maintaining NY's transportation infrastructure? What kind of innovative solutions are in place to foster diversity and inclusion? What are the newest tools and how are we using them? One of the most high profile topics is the proposed congestion pricing. What are the pros and cons of this? We delve into new technologies, green innovations, projects on the horizon, and more.
Connecting All of New York
This panel will explore the trend of creating innovative infrastructure projects to help connect low-income, and minority communities with all of New York. Gov. Kathy Hochul has promised $3 billion in funding for infrastructure projects that reunite neighborhoods, promote economic growth and revitalize urban centers. All boroughs have received many different types of alternative transportation which has helped communities commute and connect more easily. The MTA is making more stations accessible, adding elevators to many stations and upgrading/adding accessibility features which makes travel much easier for vulnerable and disabled riders, as well as adding other paratransit services. Experts from government, construction and community development groups will come together to explain how this effort is unfolding in our region.
