Upcoming Events

The Mineta Consortium for Transportation Mobility organizes or participates in several transportation-related events each year. These include national summits, regional forums, industry conferences, or special events and broadcasts. You can find leading transportation experts at all of these events, making them an excellent resource not only for professional and research insights, but also for networking.

The 2019 WIiT conference, sixth in a series that began in 1978, will focus on women's issues related to all aspects of travel and transportation. The 2014 conference, under the theme Bridging the Gap, explored and addressed the gender differences in access to transportation and mobility, responsiveness of transport systems to needs and preferences of women, transportation safety, personal security, and participation of women in decision-making and wealth creation in the transportation sector. The 2019 conference will pick up similar themes, this time guided by an evaluative framework of three lenses: insights, inclusion and impact.

September 14, 2019 Latinos in Transit Leadership Summit  -  Irvine, CA

 

September 19, 2019 Research Snaps Webinar: Will CA's Green Goal for ZEVs Cut Revenue Along with Greenhouse Gas Emissions?

California is in the midst of several ambitious shifts in its transportation infrastructure, funding, and vehicle fleet composition. Governor Jerry Brown set a target of reaching 5 million zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs) by 2030. Such a rapid increase of electric cars would mean fewer drivers paying fuel taxes, the state’s largest source of transportation revenue. But, in 2017 the passage of SB1 added annual road improvement fees, some of which vary with the value of the vehicles. We compared the revenue lost to the state because electric vehicles with revenue gained by the new fees and found surprising results. The switch to electric vehicles will not necessarily reduce the state’s future revenue for transportation programs. 

Speakers: Drs. Matin Wachs and Asha W. Agrawal

MTI is proud to be participating in Sciencepalooza! 2020! Sciencepalooza! is science fair for all East Side Union High School (ESUHSD) students, whether they're a first-time science fair participant, a returning participant, and/or someone who wants to get a head start on a project for the regional science fair a few weeks later. Usually 700-900 students from different grade levels participate to create the most authentic "real world" work they can. These projects require students to create solutions, meet deadlines, and explain their product/ project.
