Traffic Advisory, The Future of Transportation: A practical approach

Gabe Klein (http://gabeklein.com/bio), former Transportation Commissioner for Chicago and former Transportation Director for Washington, DC, will speak about how American cities can plan for the future of urban transportation. Pulling from his experiences in both cities and the private sector, he will examine new mobility ideas and concepts as well as discussing how he's engaged key stakeholder groups to accomplish large scale change in complex environments.  Klein's talk will also highlight several real life examples that demonstrate how DC and Chicago achieved these changes from conception to completion.

The Traffic Advisory speaker series is part of Overhaul: The 2013-2014 Transportation Series, sponsored by the Barr Foundation and organized by the Boston Society of Architects and the Boston Foundation for Architecture, is bringing together leaders from across North America and Europe to talk to us about the role that 21st century transportation can and should play in adapting to a new period of transformative change.
