Transportation issues have an immense impact on quality of life, especially in Tarrant County, one of the nation’s fastest-growing corridors. Beyond the time that sitting in traffic takes away from the time we’d rather spend with our families, the issue has deeper implications on economic development, air quality, and health and physical safety.
As the region continues to grow, mobility will be a key concern in the sustainability and enhancement of quality of life. The Tarrant Transportation Summit, hosted by Tarrant County Commissioner Gary Fickes, has grown to become one of the premier transportation events in Texas and provides one of the region’s best venues for ongoing dialogue and proposed solutions to the most pressing transportation problems.
Join fellow North Texans at the summit, 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Feb. 14 at the Hurst Conference Center, 1601 Campus Drive in Hurst.
This year’s event will feature these topics:
- 5G’s role in transforming transportation technology.
- The future of public-private partnerships in Texas.
- How transportation technology is revolutionizing transit.
- AllianceTexas Mobility Innovation Zone: Could the North Texas region be home to the largest transportation technology proving ground?
A keynote address will be presented by Rasheq Zarif, managing director of the Future of Mobility Tech Sector for Deloitte. He will discuss the current transportation transformation and the opportunities the North Texas region can leverage to be the global leader in the space.
Individual seats at the summit are $75, which includes a light breakfast buffet and keynote luncheon.
