Pittsburgh has gotten a lot of attention recently from Uber's launch of its first fleet of autonomous vehicles. However, this is only the latest milestone in a long history of innovation in transportation and infrastructure. From railroads and bridges to trolley cars and airports, Pittsburgh has been at the center of many transitions, both good and bad. Today, the city's (usually) positive repuation around its bridges and rivers are juxtaposed with notoriety for unintuitive roads, crumbling infrastructure, bad drivers, and poor accessibility.

We invite Stan Caldwell (Executive Director of Traffic21), Sean Luther (Executive Director of Envision Downtown), Ian Neumaier (Founder of Find Some Flow), and Allison Plummer (Co-founder of Transit-Source), to discuss these changes and their significance for the future.
