City Leadership in an Uncertain Federal Environment

People in cities know what matters in transportation, and it’s not blind spending on concrete. Street design projects and transportation programs that make it easier, safer, and more affordable to access jobs and opportunities are critical to building strong local economies and resilient communities. In today’s uncertain federal environment, cities continue to lead the way, pursuing forward-thinking policies and building projects on the ground that connect people and create sustainable, inclusive cities.

In this session, meet the leaders of transportation departments in some of the U.S.’s most innovative cities, and hear how they are setting the transportation policy agenda, with, or without, support from Washington.
