Transit fills an essential role in achieving regional and global sustainability. Not only can transit provide improved mobility and accessibility, transit can and should work to reduce GHGs, to support compact land use patterns, to create value and equity, and to decrease congestion and VMT. As an industry, transit should work to minimize its overall industry impact through sustainable techniques. While significant efforts are already underway, your input is valued and needed to structure an innovative regional action agenda. This symposium offers a unique opportunity to participate in a multidiscipline debate to develop critical next steps needed to achieve regional sustainability and livability goals.
