Published on

Where are living wage jobs? Where is high-quality, affordable workforce housing? What are the most pressing health issues and where are they concentrated? How well does the region’s transportation system connect the income, housing and health needs of individuals and families? How can multi-modal transportation make the region healthier, stronger and more resilient?

Join local and national experts on Regional Day for a lively discussion about these topics—including the potential of predictive analytics to help transportation systems become more efficient, safer and easier to use. At the end of Regional Day, meet with colleagues from your own communities to share your insights and plan next steps.
