Information Exchange: Events

The 3rd Annual Tri-State Transit Symposium

Elmer Holmes Bobst Library, NYU - New York, NY, USA
Oct 25, 2002

The Rudin Center for Transportation Policy and Management and the Institute for Civil Infrastructure Systems (ICIS) at the New York University (NYU) Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service, in affiliation with The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), and the New York Metropolitan Transportation Council (NYMTC) will hold the 3rd Annual Transit Symposium on Friday, October 25, 2002. The Symposium will focus on "Mega Projects" both within the New York region and abroad.


As the New York metropolitan area grows, increased pressure is placed on the local transportation network. In order to address this demand, it is imperative that industry leaders understand the impact of shifts in government funding as well as the opportunities presented by evolving technologies. This event will highlight options for upgrades and improvements to the NY region’s transportation system, identify the requirements to fulfill these plans, and provide an opportunity to learn from other cities' initiatives.


Our keynote speakers are

Katherine Lapp, Executive Director, Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA)

Emil Frankel, Assistant Secretary for Transportation Policy, U.S. Department of  Transportation (DOT)


In addition to our featured speakers, panels sessions, comprised of institutional and academic leaders, will address two key topics:

Access to the Region's Core: Alleviating the Growing Transportation Burden and

Lessons Learned: MegaProjects in the U.S. and Abroad
