Future of Transportation

Thursday, March 21, 2019 -
7:00pm to 8:00pm

How we move throughout the city and beyond is changing. How and when goods are delivered to us is changing, too. Could new transportation technology and services deliver solutions to long-standing problems? Could congestion, unproductive commute times, and dangerous crashes be a thing of the past?

Join the Free Library of Philadelphia and the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) for an engaging panel discussion to explore the new trends and projects that will shape the future of transportation in Philadelphia.

Panelists Include:
Leslie S. Richards - Secretary, Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT)
Jeff Knueppel - General Manager, SEPTA
Michael A. Carroll - Deputy Managing Director for Transportation, City of Philadelphia
Shari Shapiro - Director of Mid-Atlantic Public Affairs, Lime
Barry Seymour - Executive Director, DVRPC (Moderator)

This event is a part of the Free Library’s exhibition of Philadelphia: The Changing City, which draws from 300 years of prints, photographs, documents, and maps to reveal the planned and unplanned changes that have affected Philadelphia’s landscape, buildings, and inhabitants. The exhibit closes on April 13.
