Next Week Is the 2016 Vision Zero Conference — Get Tickets While You Can

Transportation_Alternatives

Tickets are going fast for the Vision Zero Cities 2016 Conference, hosted by Transportation Alternatives and Families for Safe Streets.

Next Thursday and Friday, March 10 and 11, attendees will hear from livable streets luminaries and public officials including Janette Sadik-Khan, Jon Orcutt, Polly Trottenberg, Ryan Russo, Ydanis Rodriguez, Antonio Reynoso, Meera Joshi, Rohit Aggarwala, Steve Vaccaro, and Barron Lerner.

To kick things off Thursday, Jill Abramson will moderate a Q&A with Bill Bratton. It's not often you get to see the New York police commissioner field questions on traffic safety from the former editor-in-chief of the Times. There’s also a party Thursday evening to mark the release of “Street Fight,” the new book from Sadik-Khan and former DOT spokesperson Seth Solomonow.

TA staff and members of Families for Safe Streets will participate in panels on automated enforcement, engineering streets for safety, using data to guide Vision Zero policy, and transportation equity. Physicians and researchers will lead a session on the impact of traffic violence on public health. There will be walking and biking tours of Queens Boulevard and Morningside Avenue, and lots more.

This year’s conference will be held at NYU’s Kimmel Center. Tickets start at $250, and we hear they're close to selling out.
