Some of these efforts have borne fruit, while others are just underway. This distinguished panel of transit industry leaders will discuss both user trends at their systems, as well as the latest on what they are doing to increase ridership and the results they are seeing.

AM 4: From the Ports to Your Front Porch: The Changing Landscape of Logistics

Magic Kingdom Ballroom 4

Sponsored by Jacobs

From food, goods and nearly everything in between – in 2010 over 1.5 billion tons of cargo valued at almost $2 trillion moved across the region’s transportation systems – an estimate only guaranteed to grow in the near future. Everything we purchase has an origin and destination with a number of steps in the process. The movement of goods thus requires a multimodal system utilizing our ports, highways, aviation and evolving technology. With the demand for more at a quicker pace, transportation and goods movement systems are moving to accommodate growth in the throughput. How do we remain competitive and support the region’s economic vitality, while meeting clean air standards and ensuring the best possible quality of life?

Now, like never before, transportation is at a crossroads. There are increasingly diverse, and sometimes conflicting, opinions about the fundamental purposes and objectives of transportation. This diversity of thought can empower us, leading to more interest, opportunities and funding. But it can also divide us, leading to fragmented advocacy and worse outcomes for transportation. This panel will discuss the latest thinking, from the regions and the state, and identify ways we can come together to influence the future of mobility and transportation in the Golden State.
