Transportation & Communities Summit 2019

September 19, 2019 - September 20, 2019

Join us at the 11th annual Transportation and Communities Summit 2019! This annual event at Portland State University (PSU) in Portland, Oregon connects national mobility-focused research to local practice through breakout panel presentations, PechaKucha, posters, and networking between academics and practitioners.

This year we’re excited to welcome our keynote Ben Wellington—a data scientist and policy analyst from New York, NY. The founder of I Quant NY, his data analysis has influenced local government policy including changes in NYC street infrastructure, the way New Yorkers pay for cabs and the design of NYC subway vending machines, and his talk on urban data was featured on TEDTalks. He is a contributor to The New Yorker, and a Visiting Assistant Professor in the City & Regional Planning program at The Pratt Institute in Brooklyn.
