Major disruptions lead to opportunities for change and improvements – but where and how should these changes happen? An esteemed panel of experts will provide perspectives on how COVID-19 has and will impact the future of transportation, and provide insights into what public officials and decision makers should be considering going forward.

Specific topics to be explored by the panelists include:

  • Re-Imagining Infrastructure – How to Build Better: New considerations and approaches for future transportation infrastructure investments will be discussed.
  • Cascadia Vision 2050: A proposal will be shared on how the development of the Cascadia innovation corridor, that starts in Vancouver B.C., goes through the Puget Sound, and down to Portland, Oregon, can serve as a global model for sustainable growth.
  • Re-Defining the Commute: The pandemic has introduced significant shifts in how we “commute”, presenting an opportunity for policymakers to consider new approaches that promote changes in travel behavior, equitable mobility, and employer participation.
  • The Employer Perspective on Re-Defining the Commute: An employer case-study will demonstrate the impact of travel incentives, disincentives, and policy on employee commute choices.
  • Statewide Business Impacts & Challenges: COVID-19 has brought many challenges and impacts to businesses of all sizes across the state. An overview of the challenges and needs of businesses, along with considerations for the future, will be addressed.
