Local Leader Perspectives on the Future of Transportation

5

One of the best sessions at the conference. The panel was able to provide perspectives on the future of transportation. Autonomous or connected vehicle and hyperloop as some of the future of transportation.

Closing Plenary

5

I really liked this session. Dr Harkey's background at the IIHS and NC Highway Safety Research Center provided a very informed perspective. His approach to winning over hesitant legislators and approach to achieving Vision Zero safety was informed and inspirational (drawing applause at some points). The on-line enabled Q&A session went quite well and provided a platform for good responses to well informed questions. I would recommend this to planners working on Vision Zero programs or considering the impact CAV will have on safety in the future.

Pedestrian/Bicycle Networks That Work!

4

Overall, the session was informative. Irini Akhnoukh's presentation on the Calgary Sky-walk system was interesting in that presentations on pedestrian networks don't usually focus on sky-ways or ped-ways. Zahidul Siddique's presentation on predictive analysis may be useful for those planners look for a way to prioritize improvements in an austere budget situation.

Complete Streets Boulevards

3

If you want a perspective on planning for implementing complete streets, this session provides some of that information. I did find the session lacking in that none of the projects have been constructed so there was really no lessons learned. Also sustainability was not addressed. (This may sound like sour grapes but) I didn't really gain any insight in a field I am pretty well versed in. Perhaps an entry level planner might find the session valuable.

Power Plenary

4

All the panelists were experts in their subject areas and provided good insight to MaaS given their respective perspectives. I though Roger Millar provided good points from the public sector perspective. This would be a good session for transportation planners to review for a broad cross section of current views on MaaS.

Generation Z – The Fortnite Evolution

4

The format of this session was unique and I found it very interesting (however, perhaps only minimally in gaining technical competence). A panel of eight students (10 to 14 years old) participated through collaboration with ITE's STEM outreach program. A second panel of 3 professionals critiqued the viewpoints the student panel presented when asked a series of questions about 4 ITE priority policy issues. It was interesting hearing the student viewpoints about current transportation issues and their visions for the future. The take away was mostly their views of the future are supported by ITE policy initiatives. (Also in it's current form shared scooter programs - micro-transit - is unsafe and dumb!)

Mobility as a Service (MaaS) - TNC and Automated Vehicle Insights

4

Laura Schewel of StreetLight Data and Narjan Van Andel had very good presentations. This presentation was good for planners who have a base level of understanding of MaaS, and want a fundamental update on current issues and some policy approaches.
