Sponsored by:
Standing Committee on Transportation and Sustainability (ADD40)

Panelists will discuss how transportation experts and the research community really isn’t coming to grips with the sustainability challenges we face. Our system is not environmentally friendly, not equitable, and not economically sensible, and much of our transportation research being is too esoteric to affect decision-making or still oriented toward old paradigms of highway building.
