Save the Date: APTA to Host Mobility Summit

As part of APTA Chair Nathaniel P. Ford Sr.'s new mobility paradigm priority, APTA has announced a new event, “The Future of Mobility Summit: From Transit Authority to Mobility Authority,” scheduled for July 12 in Washington, DC. Related programs may be scheduled the days before and after the summit.

APTA stressed that technology, entrepreneurship and changing customer expectations are disrupting traditional models of mobility and challenging the ways public transportation operators approach their business. In the coming months and years, public transit agencies will face important strategic decisions, all of which must be considered through the lens of adaptation.

The summit will frame critical questions facing public transportation agencies today, highlight innovations underway around the country and discuss ways public transportation can be the backbone of multimodal lifestyles.

Ford's initiative is being headed by Gary Thomas, president/executive director, Dallas Area Rapid Transit, and Carolyn Flowers, a senior vice president with AECOM.

Check the APTA website for more information as it becomes available.
