Please join us for a special meeting where we will hear about the innovative transportation work happening in the Kansas City region. Innovative and modern modes of transportation are emerging across the world and especially in the Kansas City region which is causing the conversation to shift from relying just on current systems to new possibilities brought about by technology. Our discussion will examine this evolving transportation landscape by bringing together experts from the public and private sectors to address what's next for transportation.
