America's transportation system is facing demolition by neglect. Calls to "do more with less" when the nation's infrastructure is crumbling ignore the needs of a system in rapid physical decline. Failure to reform the transportation system risks deepening U.S. dependence on oil and eroding global economic competitiveness. Is there a way to produce a long-term strategy that will simultaneously stabilize gas prices, finance America's transportation infrastructure, and decrease the deficit?
On November 1, Regional Plan Association and the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace will host a breakfast forum at the Harvard Club to present Carnegie's new report, Road to Recovery: Transforming America's Transportation.
A panel including Senator Bill Bradley, NJ DOT Commissioner James Simpson, and former Chairman of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, Anthony Coscia will discuss the recommendations for reforming and funding the federal transportation program in the report. The report's findings will be presented by Shin-pei Tsay, Director, Cities and Transportation Initiative, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.
