Where are We Going? Seattle’s Transportation Future

What is the future of transportation in Seattle? What can Seattle learn from other cities?

The Seattle Department of Transportation is bringing the expertise of national and international leaders who transformed cities through transportation to help Seattle see our streets and sidewalks in a new light. Join these leaders as they challenge us to develop a transportation system than can meet current demands while also looking ahead to future needs.

Come hear about the effects of new technology, demographic changes, quick project delivery, and emerging public space needs on transportation, as well as the impact transportation can have on Seattleites’ health, prosperity and happiness. Together, let’s find the answer to “Where are We Going?”
