Moving Together 2019MassDOT is announcing that the 2019 Moving Together Conference is scheduled to be held on Thursday, October 24, from 7:45 a.m., to 4:30 p.m. at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel.  The purpose of the conference is to bring together professionals from the active transportation field to highlight the important work that is being done statewide for biking, walking and transit by MassDOT and its partner agencies.

This year’s conference will feature keynote addresses by MassDOT Transportation Secretary and CEO Stephanie Pollack and Highway Administrator Jonathan Gulliver.

“The Moving Together Conference is an ideal forum for sharing ideas with our partners as it brings together people from across the state who work in the transportation sector, are dedicated to public transportation and bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure improvements and who want to collaborate further with each other and the Commonwealth,” said Secretary Pollack. “We are looking forward to this annual event to discuss many important topics as the Baker-Polito Administration is spending historic levels on capital projects for the MBTA, has been collaborating with Regional Transit Authorities to improve customer service, and is seeking partnerships to help reduce greenhouse gases, implement congestion relief initiatives and make strategic decisions about building infrastructure to be climate resilient.”

The format for this year’s conference is focused on three main tracks that focus on key areas within transportation including: 1) Project Implementation; 2) Place-Making Design; and 3) Municipal Need.  Each specific track will offer topic-related sessions that feature knowledgeable moderators and panelists with expertise in these respective areas, informational presentations and interactive question and answer opportunities and discussions.

Sessions topics include mobility and multimodal transportation, Complete Streets, MassDOT data and design guides, regional connectivity and investments in shared-use paths and trails. In addition, there will be site visits and a post-conference social hour along with opportunities throughout the day to meet with experts, network with colleagues, and visit exhibitor displays.

Attendees are encouraged to use the enhanced conference app that allows participants to register for session workshops, view agendas, network with other participants, share photos, receive live updates, and complete session evaluations.

The conference is open to all transportation professionals including municipal personnel, non-profits, design consultants, public health and transportation advocates, planning and transit agencies, researchers, and public and private sector practitioners.

The Moving Together Conference began in 2000.  In 2018, the conference included over 950 participants and 60 vendors.
