MassDOT Secretary Richard A. Davey welcomed nearly 500 attendees from across the state and New England region to MassDOT’s 13th annual Moving Together Conference promoting healthy transportation opportunities. This year’s conference theme: Transit + Walking + Bicycling = Mobility.
Secretary Davey highlighted the Commonwealth’s $1.3 billion investment in new transit rail cars and MassDOT’s new Healthy Transportation Policy Directive, along with the importance of partnerships in working towards MassDOT’s goal to triple pedestrian, bicycling and transit users.
Conference workshops and discussions led by transportation experts focused on attracting new riders to transit, changing transportation and land use habits, complete streets, bus rapid transit, accessibility, and the new demographics of bicyclists.
State partners Gregory Bialecki, Secretary of Housing and Economic Development, and Richard K. Sullivan Jr., Secretary of the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs, joined the conference and highlighted the goals and successes of Governor Patrick’s Planning Ahead for Growth Initiative, a collaboration between the state agencies to ensure that transportation and land use decisions are coordinated to promote both environmental sustainability and economic prosperity.
