Next Stop: The Future of Mass Mobility

The pandemic had many effects on transportation and travel. Besides emptying streets and trains and buses, it prompted the federal government to provide billions of dollars to keep transit running and gave transit planners a chance to see what was working and what could be improved. Coupled with the passage of the American Rescue Plan Act and the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, there is now an unprecedented opportunity to make major changes to improve transportation. What will those changes look like ?
