2023 MassDOT Moving Together Conference

2023 MassDOT Moving Together Conference

Last week WalkMassachusetts had the opportunity to attend and table at MassDOT’s Moving Together Conference. It was wonderful to once again join colleagues who are as passionate about the possibilities of active and public transportation as our staff is. Walking, alongside bicycling and public transport, encourages better health, a cleaner environment, and more vibrant communities in Massachusetts.

Brendan, Althea, Iolando, and Jonny attended workshops and panels, networked with fellow transportation advocates, and shared about WalkMassachusetts’ work while tabling.

Althea and Brendan presented on the WalkMassachusetts rebrand and our continued statewide growth at the Pedestrian Safety and Equity in the Commonwealth and Across State Lines panel. They were joined by panelists from the Central Massachusetts Regional Planning Commission and VHB to discuss pedestrian issues and opportunities in both Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Speakers for the conference included Lieutenant Governor Kim Driscoll as well as new Acting Secretary and CEO of MassDOT Monica Tibbits-Nutt. 

Slideshow presentations from our Pedestrian Safety panel as well as many others will soon be uploaded to the Moving Together Conference website, so if you weren’t able to join us keep an eye out. Additional panel topics included talks on climate resiliency, multimodal infrastructure, equity initiatives in the Gateway Cities, and much more.

Thanks to MassDOT and the UMass Transportation Center for once again bringing us all together and hosting a wonderful conference!
