Our Transportation Future

By Todd Litman, Victoria Transport Policy Institute
At the Carmichael Conference on the Future of American Transportation
January 28, 2008 at St. Louis


[ Publisher’s Note: This is the tenth in a series of addresses--- last week’s was by long-time transportation advocate and California transportation leader Rod Diridon --- from the Carmichael Conference on the Future of American Transportation held January 28-29 at the Hyatt Regency, St. Louis, MO.

This presentation by Todd Litman, executive director of the world-renowned Victoria Transport Policy Institute, is a brief but well conceived expostulation of the transportation dilemma we have created for ourselves in North America, and some of the things we might do to work our way out of that dilemma. ]
