Standstill traffic, crumbling infrastructure, endless commutes, scooter invasions. . . These crises are being felt across the country and the globe, and threaten to get worse if left unchecked. With shortfalls in public transportation funding and reluctance from the federal government to support tackling these challenges, cities and states are experimenting with new mechanisms to reassert control of their public rights-of-way; the streets, curbs, and sidewalks that represent their largest asset. Curbside management, congestion pricing, and per-mile fees are being mentioned as tools to improve traffic flow, fund infrastructure, and provide reliability and certainty for all road users. Yet for all the discussion, few governments have been willing to take the leap. Panelists will discuss how governments are approaching these big changes in policy and bringing them across the finish line, along with the stumbling blocks and surprises along the way.
