Three Regional Transportation Forums hosted in Burlington in September
- By TRC Staff
The month of September will see three important regional transportation events hosted in Burlington.
The first is the Tri-State Transit conference, which will bring transit professionals from across northern New England together for workshops and working sessions on issues of common interest. A one-day forum of the New England Parking Council will immediately follow this, hosted by UVM with a focus on University and Institutional parking issues. The next week the Eastern Border Transportation Coalition will host their annual gathering in Burlington. This group works to improve the movement of people and goods between the United States and Canada, and its members are the transportation agencies of the U.S. States of Michigan, New York, Vermont and Maine and the Canadian Provinces of Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland and Labrador. VTrans is hosting this event.
The TRC is involved in research or programs in all of these areas.
