moving-together-2017MassDOT’s 2017 Moving Together Conference is scheduled as follows:

Thursday, September 28, 7:45 AM – 4:30 PM, Boston Park Plaza Hotel, 50 Park Plaza at Arlington.

This annual statewide healthy transportation conference offers attendees the opportunity to:

  • Attend workshops and panels that highlight current pedestrian, bicycle and public transportation topics
  • Network with colleagues representing diverse interests from the public, academic and private sectors
  • Participate in new site visits and mobile workshops led by engineers and bicycle/pedestrian advocates.

The 2017 Conference highlights include:

Official launch of the statewide Pedestrian Transportation Plan’s Municipal Resource Guide, featuring:
• Why is Walkability Important?
• Elements of Walkable Communities
• ADA Accessibility
• Safety
• Maintenance
• Snow and Ice Clearance

All-day program tracks highlighting:
• Municipalities
• Complete Streets
• Transit

Mega Sessions:
• Buses
• Health and Safety Campaigns

In 1998, both the statewide bicycling action plan and the statewide pedestrian action plan, called for the establishment of an annual statewide conference for educational and networking purposes. The first two of these conferences were held in Worcester. In 2005, the conference moved to Boston. The conference continued to grow and in 2013 was held for the first time at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel. Transit joined the conference as a featured mode. In 2016, the conference sold out for the second year straight! Each year the conference continues to bring together transportation leaders and individuals involved in the areas of planning, public health, bike and pedestrian safety, transit, advocacy, elected office, law enforcement and education.
