Rethinking Urban Transportation: A free forum at the Museum of Science

Curious about the technologies you experience in your daily commute?

Whether you drive, take the T, walk or bike to work, this Forum is for you!

How does traffic affect you? As a pedestrian? As a driver?

How did Portland, Oregon radically change its downtown?

London's "congestion tax" - political suicide or victory?

Should we have more car-free zones in Boston?

What technological solutions could help? Better cars? Better public transit? Better highway flow?

What changes can we make-tomorrow? In five years? Ten?

What will transportation in Boston look like in 20 years?

Join others in your community for a thoughtful and lively Forum discussion.

In this three-hour session we'll hear from professionals about current technologies and programs that have the power to revolutionize the way we travel in the city. Group activities will help us assess our priorities based on individual experiences and explore the future in an informal and collaborative setting.
