Traffic congestion in Manhattan’s central business district is rising, causing delays to everyone, while service on the city’s buses and subways is on the decline. For-hire vehicles (FHV) have flooded the streets in congested parts of the city but not others. Meanwhile, the region’s public transportation systems are struggling with deteriorated infrastructure and chronic funding shortages.
Join a distinguished panel of experts in transportation policy, economics, and urbanism as they discuss the linkage of these critical issues, how congestion mitigation proposals now under consideration can help provide solutions to these vexing problems, and why this matters to architects, planners, and designers committed to promoting a livable and equitable city.
