Aspen Institute hosts transit presentations as part of forum to solve valley issues
May 22, 2017
An expert on innovative mobility technologies will give a presentation Wednesday in Aspen as part of the Aspen Institute Community Forum on Transportation and Mobility.
Tony Dutzik, a senior policy analyst with the Frontier Group, will speak on "Reimagining Transportation and Mobility in the Upper Roaring Fork Valley." The presentation will be from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Doerr-Hosier Center. It's free to the public.
The Aspen Institute is hosting the community forum to try to find solutions to the upper valley's transit issues. The Frontier Group is a think tank focused on the intersection of transportation, energy and the climate.
"Dutzik will discuss innovative mobility technologies and services — what they are and what they do, case studies in U.S. cities where these technologies and services have been applied, and the opportunities and challenges that innovative mobility solutions present," the Aspen Institute said in a statement about the presentation.
A second presentation will be given June 6. Greg Rucks, a principal in Rocky Mountain Institute's transportation practice division, will address technological innovations that are providing cost-effective, low-carbon solutions to traffic and congestion issues in other cities.
That presentation will be from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Wheeler Opera House. It, too, is open to the public.
