Agenda

Friday – April 26, 2019
1:30 PM • INTRODUCTIONS
1:45 PM • PANEL I: STATUS AND FUTURE OF THE TRANSPORTATION SECTOR

This session will consider the long-term trends in the transportation sector globally, nationally, and in Texas. These trends include the demand for transportation services, innovations in vehicles and fuels, energy use, and environmental impacts. The transportation sector plays a large role in economic development, the structure of urban communities, and environmental quality. A vital transportation sector that is innovative and carefully planned can dramatically enhance the quality of life. On the other hand, underinvestment or poorly conceived investment in transportation can degrade important national and community goals.

Commenters:

  • Adrian Moore, Vice President for Policy, Reason Foundation
  • Dan Becker, Director, Safe Climate Campaign
2:45 PM • URBAN MOBILITY

Urban communities are shaped by their transportation systems and generate more than half of all transportation services. It appears that dramatic changes may be coming in this sector with developments in electric vehicles, clean fuels, new transportation services and disruptive technologies such as autonomous vehicles.

Commenters:

  • David Raney, Corporate Manager for Regulatory Affairs and Powertrain, Toyota
  • Carter Stern, Senior Policy Partnerships Manager, Lyft
  • Lori Clark, DFW Clean Cities Coordinator, North Central Texas Council of Governments.
3:45 PM • BREAK
4:00 PM • PANEL III: INTERCITY TRANSPORT

There are also exciting new developments in the long-distance transportation of people and goods. Texas will soon be home to one of the first high-speed rail systems in the U.S. The airline industry has made significant commitments to address the impact of its global warming emissions. And attention to logistics in rail and truck movement has dramatically reduced fuel costs and emissions for some major companies in the railroad and trucking sectors.

Commenters:

  • Doug Berven, Vice President of Corporate Affairs, POET
  • John Lovenberg, Vice President, Environmental, BNSF Railway
  • Holly Reed, Managing Director for External Affairs, Texas Central Partners (invited)
5:00 PM • WRAP-UP AND CONCLUDING REMARKS

All participants will have an opportunity to make concluding comments. Glenn Prickett and Stephen Coffman will close the workshop.
