Tackling state transportation policy during and after COVID


Please join us on Wednesday, February 17th at 12PM PST/3PM EST for a special webinar designed for legislators and state think tanks. National and state transportation experts will share big ideas, simple recommendations, and a path forward on state transportation policy both during and after the COVID recovery. This is a great opportunity for questions and discussion with national and state experts who can offer ideas on how you can advance free-market transportation policies in your state that promote innovation, increase mobility, and spur economic growth.  

What you can expect:

The current pandemic has introduced unprecedented uncertainty into everyday transportation operations and long-term transportation planning. Travelers have drastically reduced commuting and their use of crowded, shared-transportation modes, including mass transit. It is unclear when—or if—travel will return to past trends or whether this “new normal” will persist indefinitely.

Transportation and COVID-19: A State Guide to Policy and Priorities, on which this webinar is based, can help. Authored by Bob Poole, Baruch Feigenbaum, Marc Scribner, Mariya Frost, Randal O’Toole, and Wendell Cox – this concise, easy-to-use guide aims to help guide state legislators and state-based policy organizations as they navigate transportation policy decisions.

During the webinar, you can expect a brief overview of each chapter, covering:

  • the importance of utilizing public-private partnerships;
  • reinventing public transit;
  • reducing Amtrak subsidies;
  • strengthening the users-pay principle;
  • considering the role of working from home;
  • prioritizing the resilience of highways; and
  • encouraging a permissive regulatory environment for future mobility.
