Transportation systems are vitally important to the functioning of a city. However, the potentially close quarters of public transit, the near- term impact of the stay-at-home advisories on air travel, and the shift in many business to incorporate working from home, all exhibit the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and the broader fragility of our urban systems. Our expert panel, consisting of faculty and government officials, will discuss what transportation systems and transportation resilience may look like in a post-pandemic world.
Meet the Panelists:

Erik Stoothoff, Chief Engineer for the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority
Sam Sleiman, Director of Capital Programs and Environmental Affairs for the Massachusetts Port Authority
