Free Webinar: Transpo, Vision Zero, Transit & Greater Philadelphia’s Economy

A robust transportation system that is user-friendly and safe, well-maintained streets are important components of age-friendly communities. They are also critical to the economic health of metropolitan regions like Greater Philadelphia.

But, how do the multiple goals of complete streets that are in good state of repair, zero traffic deaths, and a transit system that both attracts and meets the needs of its riders support a thriving regional economy?

On Wednesday, December 8th, the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia and AARP-Pennsylvania will host regional experts who discuss how a sustainable and safe transportation network and transit system brings economic benefits to employers and commerce.

As new federal dollars start to flow to Greater Philadelphia as part of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, this topic is more relevant as ever. Because transportation is a key pillar of AARP-Philadelphia’s Livable Communities campaign, it is sponsoring this panel to have a public dialogue about the potential for how a stronger, safer and more sustainable transportation and transit networks will benefit the region’s economy.

Date: Wednesday December 8

Time: 10:30 a.m. Pacific Time
