Over the next 30 years, Metro Vancouver's population will grow by one million and add half a million jobs to the economy. As a region, we will have to address transportation challenges and face some difficult decisions: How will we travel for work, school and play? How will we move goods to increase our region’s economic prosperity while maintaining our quality of life? 

Rethinking Transportation: New Voices, New Ideas is a series that focuses on key transportation issues and opportunities facing the Metro Vancouver region. The series will explore new perspectives on the movement of people and goods in cities with thought leaders, decision makers and experts from across North America who have tackled some of the most pressing transportation challenges today. 

All lectures will be webcast live.
