Past Events

The California State University Transportation Consortium Mobility organizes or participates in several transportation-related events each year.

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.

Dates Events
June 21, 2019 The Intersection between Transportation and Housing: Building Blocks to the Future  -  San Francisco, CA
While the San Francisco Bay Area is booming with jobs and (for many) high wages, people are increasingly priced out of the housing market. The region risks losing people to fill jobs that are essential to California’s economy. A variety of taxes, grants, fees and other public revenue sources can help fund affordable housing. Moreover, an innovative solution is to involve public transportation agencies. To that end, agency-owned land in and around transportation hubs could be incentivized to create transit-oriented development projects, which place high-density housing above or adjacent to transit centers. This provides easy mobility while offering less-costly living space.
These and other innovations were discussed at the 10th Annual Norman Y. Mineta National Transportation Policy Summit, a free, half-day event hosted by the Mineta Transportation Institute at the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco.

May 17, 2019 Garrett Morgan Sustainable Transportation Competition 2019

Garrett Augustus Morgan (1877-1963) was one of seven children born in Kentucky to former slaves. After enduring the challenges of farming in the South and having to quit school to earn a living at the age of 14, he moved to Cincinnati, Ohio. While working as a handyman in Ohio, Morgan hired a tutor to continue his education, influencing him to open his own business as a clothing manufacturer and start a successful newspaper. Garrett Morgan's innovative drive led him to obtain many patents, but one of his most prominent inventions, the three-way traffic signal, was designed to make roads safer for everyone, but especially pedestrians. It is not only for his inventions, but for his innovative spirit and determination for continued education in the face of adversity that MTI is proud to honor this trailblazer through the Garrett Morgan Sustainable Transportation Competition
