As the needs of the public continue to change, transportation agencies must continue to adapt and evolve to help people get to where they need to go.

AM 4: Getting to Zero

Magic Kingdom 4

Sponsored by VSCE, Inc.

California’s transportation agencies have long been leaders in deploying clean vehicle technology. With the state’s goal to reach 5 million zero-emission vehicles on the road by 2030, a recently adopted state policy to transition to zero-emission bus fleets by 2040, and efforts to expand rail options while still meeting regional air quality mandates, questions arise: Will transportation agencies get the resources needed to adapt? Will manufacturers meet the challenges? What opportunities exist for business development? Will there be enough energy to meet the demand? Join us as transportation agencies, manufacturers and utilities discuss opportunities and barriers to success as we transition to a zero-emissions future.

California’s State of Education: Working Together to Take our Children Beyond the Limits

There are currently over six million students in California’s K-12 school system. Two million of these students are underachieving. Is that OK? California leads the world in technology and entrepreneurship and yet one third of our students are failing. With critical workforce shortages facing the transportation industry, what is needed to develop our students and our future workforce?

Think Together is a California statewide educational nonprofit that partners with schools to change the odds for children through enhanced school services. Dr. Avelar La Salle, Principal at Think Together, is an expert on public education in California, received her Ph.D. in Education from Stanford University and during her career has held the roles of teacher, principal, district administration, researcher, and university professor.

PM 3: The Cost to Drive

Magic Kingdom 3

Sponsored by Professional Engineers in California Government

How much should people pay to drive, and how? Motorists pay gas and other taxes and, in some places, tolls or express lane charges. Some say that motorists should pay more or in different ways, including a road charge to replace the gas tax, more toll and express lane options, or congestion pricing on overcrowded roads. What makes sense and what will happen? Join us as our expert speakers provide critical insights and discuss their plans and projects for the brave new world of paying to drive in California.

PM 4: Cracking the Code of Transit Ridership

Magic Kingdom 4

Sponsored by SafeworkCM

Ridership has continued to decline for years despite tireless efforts by many transit agencies to reverse this trend. The share in use of passenger cars, including the rise of rideshare platforms, are rising in popularity while interest in fixed route systems are falling in this modern mobility era. Is there a way to make transit more competitive again? Join us as regional transportation leaders discuss new partnerships and strategic initiatives in the works to evolve the concept of “mass transportation” and crack the ridership code.

CEO Roundtable: Leveraging Mobility

Homelessness, housing density, climate change, resiliency, technology, jobs. What about mobility? The mission of transportation agencies is to move people and goods, but in recent years the federal government, state mandates, and local pressures have increasingly informed and directed local decision-making on transportation projects and programs. Should transportation agencies lead on these broader societal issues? The Southern California transportation executives will speak to how their agencies are working to meet the region’s mobility needs, now and in the future, and how they are also working with public and private entities to protect the environment, provide job opportunities and help address the challenges within our communities.
