About the Program
Veronica Davis (Nspiregreen) and James Davenport (Nspiregreen & VDOT/GEC) will present two approaches to promote Transportation Alternatives.
Transform 66—James will discuss the marketing and communication efforts to help promote Commuter Options to employers and property managers along the I-66 corridor as well as the general public.
Nspiregreen—Veronica will review Nspiregreen projects that encourage other aspects of transportation. In other words, projects that improve areas to a point where auto “would not be king.” These projects incorporate “Complete Streets” techniques such as road diets, improvement to transit stations, mobility hubs, bike paths, pedestrian safety, etc.
