The Public Policy Summit engages ACT members and representatives of the broader TDM and Mobility-on-Demand community in important conversations around policy issues involving regulations and legislation that are critical to the support of transportation demand management strategies and increasing the use of transportation options. This exciting and engaging event is an opportunity to learn, shape, and be heard. ACT is ready to build off its recent success in the FAST Act and the passage of permanent transit benefit parity. It also provides attendees an opportunity to meet directly with policymakers and elected leaders to show the positive impact that our programs and organizations have on individual commuters, employers, and our communities.
This year’s event will focus on polices at all levels of government, from learning about and helping shape Federal regulations down to learning about local ordinances that promote TDM and Mobility on Demand.
