The Leonard Transportation Center at Cal State San Bernardino is presenting the third in a series of six dialogues on topics relevant to the future of transportation in the Inland Empire.
The series is open to the public and sponsored by HNTB Corporation, an infrastructure solutions firm.
The third program will take place on May 22 at CSUSB, starting at 7:30 a.m. in the Santos Manuel Student Union, room 215/216.
In this session, titled “Can Technology Save Us?,” attendees will hear from noted transportation experts, including:
• Jason Pack, principal with Fehr and Peers and expert on emerging mobility solutions and their potential impacts on our lives;
• Thomas Allen, sales and marketing executive, Phoenix Motor Cars; and
• David Pickeral, internationally recognized mobility and transportation technology consultant.
The session will be moderated by Matt Burris, deputy city manager for community and economic development for the city of Rancho Cucamonga.
Following the presentation, attendees will engage in a discussion with an opportunity to share their concerns and ideas with transportation professionals, policy makers and each other.
Transportation experts from HNTB will facilitate this discussion and will bring their experience in transportation technology to benefit the dialogue.
Along with a look at emerging transportation technologies that have the potential to radically change the way we get from here to there, the dialogue will also seek to explore questions related to whether all of these changes are truly beneficial.
“There are numerous challenges to consider with respect to regulations, certifications, infrastructure, travel costs, traffic management, safety and psychological barriers,” said Greg Hulsizer, HNTB toll market practice leader and vice president. “This dialogue will address the real possibilities and challenges of these rapidly approaching technological advances in transportation.”
The cost for the series is $30 per session. Registration fees cover a continental breakfast, parking on campus and conference materials. Attendance is limited to the first 50 registrants, so early registration is recommended. To register, visit https://www.csusb.edu/leonard-transportation-center/conversations/events.
