Event Summary:

IPFA Americas: New York: From Transit Hubs to Smart Cities - The Development of Mixed Use Urban Transportation Projects

Urbanization and underinvestment are two significant factors affecting the U.S. public transportation sector. As generational preferences for urban living evolve, cities are being compelled to explore new models of transportation development and transit-centred urban planning. 

The trend toward urban renewal is well established, led by millennials and empty-nesters, often placing a strain on existing infrastructure.  Meanwhile, suburban commuters are experiencing higher traffic volumes and substandard transportation alternatives. 

Forward-thinking transportation projects of the early 20th century, like the New York subway, are showing their age, yet their utility remains.  Concurrently, emerging technologies promise a connected world of inter-city and last mile solutions which enable a re-discovery of appealing urban spaces and pedestrian access. 

Will the bold initiatives of the 21st century look into the future while re-discovering the past? At this event, we will discuss new approaches to transportation development that are beginning to address these unmistakable trends.
