Bicycle Colorado Looking to the Future of Transportation with Moving People Forward Conference

Within the next 20 years, transportation in Colorado will completely change as we know it. Bicycle Colorado’s one-day conference will dive deep into the present and future of mobility and how communities need to prioritize how people want to move. This second-annual event will spark conversations and illuminate ideas around solving transportation challenges with emerging technologies, public-private partnerships and smart data.

Moving People Forward will take place Tuesday, February 13, 2018 at the Embassy Suites hotel in downtown Denver.

Bicycle Colorado, a Denver-based nonprofit, is a statewide leader in the push toward mobility innovations, always keeping bicycles and other modes of active transportation at the forefront of high-level discussions and planning processes. If you ride a bicycle and want safer and more efficient options for getting around by bike, foot or on transit, this conference is for you.

Expected to attend Moving People Forward are 250 transportation and civic leaders, alternative and active transportation advocates, city planners, technology innovators and community members wanting to stay informed and engaged.

The conference keynote speaker, Scott Kubly, former head of Seattle’s transportation department, will share how the program Move Seattle led to a massive increase in people turning to bicycling, walking and transit. Also featured will be a panel with a nationally-renowned transportation planner from Seattle and new Denver director of public works.

The event also features a Bike Share Forum optional add-on with limited spots available. Learn how dockless bike share systems are rapidly changing the bike share landscape and providing a whole new option to conquering ‘last mile’ woes, while also presenting new challenges.

Last but not least, the event wraps up with a conference happy hour with plenty of time to network, continue conversations and enjoy a cold one with new and familiar faces.
