Detroit Regional Chamber: Detroit Policy Conference

I’m honored to join RTA CEO Michael Ford and attorney Dennis Cowan in presenting a regional transit panel at this year’s Detroit Policy Conference on February 26:

The Detroit Policy Conference bolsters the city’s ongoing transformation by bringing together key business, community and political leaders to inspire innovative solutions and urban revitalization. 

Our panel is entitled: Connecting the Region: Transit Development in the “D”

Detroit is positioned to shine on the world economic stage, but maintaining the momentum following bankruptcy requires a comprehensive, connected transportation plan. This panel explores the challenges and opportunities facing the Regional Transportation Authority and how improved transit infrastructure can support economic development and urban revitalization, and provide increased mobility to residents and commuters.
