25th Annual Envisioning California Conference - Moving On: Transforming Transportation in California

With over 800 miles of coastline and 160,000 square miles of land, California faces enormous challenges to move its people and
transport its goods. Responding to those challenges has involved a transcontinental rail line through the Sierra Nevada, a bridge
spanning the Golden Gate, the storied Pacific Coast Highway, and some of the world ‘s busiest ports, among other innovations. Today,
California’s transportation infrastructure is beset by age and obsolescence. The state’s transportation planners are confronted with
critical environmental and security issues that were not envisioned in earlier decades. Policies for addressing those issues will have a
profound impact on the quality and nature of California’s communities, and affect the work and leisure opportunities for its people. This
conference will examine the challenges facing California’s transportation system, and will explore policy options and their associated
trade-offs for future innovations.
