Uncle Sam wants YOUR Ideas about the Future of Transportation
Mar 16, 2015
The Federal Department of Transportation (DoT) is asking the public for their (i.e. your) opinions about the future of transportation, in the United States, for the next thirty years (2015-2045).
Latest Update: 2019 June 11 10:48 EDT.
I am maintaining an ongoing list of upcoming events. It is also available at www.PROACCTIVE.info#Group-U or an abridged version at www.LeviCar.com/#Upcoming – look at the middle and right-hand columns. The mobile versions are at m.PROACCTIVE.info#Group-U and at m.LeviCar.com#Upcoming.
These events have to do with electric and alternative-fuel propulsion, as well as alternate guideway architectures, such as monorails, troughs, tubes, and suspended vehicles. Also, a few events that discuss policy matters are also included.
The events include both those for professionals, such as conferences, lectures, and webinars; and also shows, expos, and tours for the popular audience.
At the bottom of the list are links to six spreadsheets containing all the information for all events, past, present, and future, that were ever published here, including some for which I haven’t had the chance to “code”. If you missed something and is no longer shown on this page, it will still be in one of the spreadsheets, albeit in a less convenient format.I have included a source link for most of these, that is, a link to the web page where I found them. Not all events on these web pages get included in my list, so you might want to check these web pages yourself.
