UTC Spring 2022 Seminar Series Heading link

For spring 2022, the UTC will host two Seminar Series presentations.  The overarching focus will be these topics vital to transportation today — funding and workforce development.  Both events are open to all interested parties and will be hosted on zoom.  The presentations kick off at noon and run for one hour.  Participants are encouraged to pose questions.

March 17: “The Federal Bipartisan Infrastructure Law: Opportunities for Transformative Change.”  This presentation focused on how federal funding will help make public transportation and communities stronger and more resilient. The featured speaker was Art Guzzetti, Vice President of Mobility Initiatives and Public Policy, at the American Public Transportation Association. During his passionate talk, Mr. Guzzetti addressed the “triple hit” the COVID-19 pandemic brought to the nation’s public transit network.
