No fooling, you won’t want to miss this one!
For our special April 1st Policy Hacking we’ll be talking about transportation funding, and how we can hack the system for better, more equitable, sustainable transportation systems. Our experts this month are two rock stars of the transportation policy hacking world: Tony Dutzik and Todd Litman.
Most transportation projects are planned and funded based on the assumption that the only way to address traffic and congestion is to widen or build new roads. Todd and Tony have some much better ideas that they’re willing to share with you – tune in and find out more, and how you you too can help hack transportation policy!
Todd Litman is founder and executive director of the Victoria Transport Policy Institute, an independent research organization dedicated to developing innovative solutions to transport problems. His work helps expand the range of impacts and options considered in transportation decision-making, improve evaluation methods, and make specialized technical concepts accessible to a larger audience. His research is used worldwide in transport planning and policy analysis.
Tony Dutzik is associate director and senior policy analyst with Frontier Group. His research and ideas on climate, energy and transportation policy have helped shape public policy debates across the U.S. and have earned coverage in outlets from National Public Radio to the Financial Times. He is the lead author of A New Way Forward and 50 Steps Toward Carbon-Free Transportation, which together lay out a vision and policy roadmap for decarbonizing America’s transportation system, as well as numerous other reports and white papers.
