Transportation Trends from West Coast Summit

Participants at the Decision Lens Transportation Summit in San Francisco offered perspectives on the current transportation environment.  Below are some of the findings:

  • In the future baby boomers will be retiring so there will be a larger working population.
  • The Millenial generation will be choosing to use transit.
  • People will be driving less and increasing in bicycle use and other modes of transportation (other than driving)
  • Congestion pricing will become more of an issue and toll lanes will be increasing.

As a result, participants discussed the following transportation trends:

  • Increase in ridership
  • Demographic shift and behaviors
  • Less VMT, Vehicles/HH
  • Alternative Modes, Inter-modal
  • The Multi-modal city
