Virtual summit addresses mobility challenges

Tuesday, July 13, 2021 by Chad Swiatecki

Movability, the nonprofit group that seeks to reduce car trips to workplaces, will hold a virtual mobility summit on July 21. The event will focus on the transportation challenges that have returned following the Covid-19 pandemic and how they impact equity, the environment, housing, job access and affordability. Speakers including Travis County Judge Andy Brown, State Sen. Sarah Eckhardt, Williamson County Commissioner Cynthia Long, and Catherine Crago, the head of strategic initiatives for the Housing Authority of the City of Austin, will discuss possible changes to federal transportation policy, how to improve local transportation, and the variety of impacts that transportation can have on different segments of the local population. Register for the free summit on Eventbrite.

Editor’s Note: Andy Brown is on the board of the Capital of Texas Media Foundation, the parent nonprofit of the Austin Monitor.
