Planes, Trains, Automobiles, Buses (and Bikes) Seminar Series

Please join the Taubman Center for State and Local Government and the Rappaport Institute for Greater Boston for the next session of the Planes, Trains, Automobiles, Buses, and Bikes (PTABB) seminar series. Greater Boston was recently ranked as the metro region with the worst traffic in the United States. Congestion is holding back our economy and hurting our quality of life. It doesn't have to be this way. Other regions of the country are tackling this problem head-on by putting a price on driving, thereby improving the experience for drivers and transit riders and making meaningful progress on air-pollution and climate goals. Learn why and how equitable road pricing can work in Massachusetts from the leading advocacy voice for statewide transportation reform. Chris Dempsey was formerly Assistant Secretary of Transportation for the Commonwealth. In that role, he co-founded the MBTA’s open-data program, which was named Innovation of the Year by WTS-Massachusetts in 2010. Chris has also worked as a consultant at Bain & Co., on a number of local and statewide political campaigns including that of Congressman Joe Kennedy III, and at a transportation technology startup that provides mobile ticketing for transit systems in New York, Boston, and Los Angeles.
