Urban Planners and Aging Network Professionals agree that accessible transportation and travel options are central elements of a livable community. We are in a new frontier for transportation and both professions play an important role in leveraging technology to create more efficient and easier ways for individuals of any age and ability to get around. In this third annual summit, expert panelists will focus on forward thinking programs reshaping our communities and providing long term solutions on how mobility is delivered. Participants will actively engage with multiple players in different sectors that will push our thinking on the possibilities for a new transportation reality and real options for our communities.
