    2021 Region 10 Transportation Conference Recap

    Several weeks ago, PacTrans concluded the 2021 Region 10 Transportation Conference co-hosted by the Center for Safety Equity in Transportation Tier 1 UTC. This year the event was held virtually, with an opening event on Friday, October 15 and carrying into the following week.

    During that following week, the conference hosted Webinar Week with one webinar each day on various topics surrounding the conference theme, Envisioning Post-Pandemic Transportation Safety and Mobility.

    Roughly 175 attendees from industry, agencies, and academia heard from nineteen different presenters on various topics surrounding issues of mobility and safety. Specific topics included climate change, social equity in transportation, new commuting patterns, new funding mechanisms, new technology applications in rural settings, and more.

    This year’s virtual conference also showcased a virtual poster session, where a handful of our UTC funded researchers created short videos to highlight their great work. These videos, along with the recordings of the live events, and the winners of the 2020 PacTrans Annual Awards, can all be found on our conference website: www.pactransconference.com.

    PacTrans would like to thank everyone who came out and participated in this year’s conference, as well as those who helped put together this event. We really appreciate all the work that went into planning it and we hope to see you all next year!
