The WTS - HOT Chapter's 6th Annual Professional Development Seminar will explore specific strategies to meet Central Texas’ critical mobility needs. Central Texas is projected to continue its phenomenal pace of growth in both population and employment, and yet traditional transportation capacity in the form of added roadways is not keeping pace. The demand for mobility is not being met, and the increased congestion and pollution are harming our region. Central Texans are asking for alternative mobility strategies such as greater level of service of existing facilities, creativity in addressing bottlenecks or gaps in connectivity, and broader transportation options.

This seminar is oriented towards transportation professionals interested in collaborating and advancing the vision of an integrated transportation system. The integrated transportation system provides more travel options and connectivity, improves transportation reliability, and facilitates travel demand reduction as appropriate. Sessions cover overviews from a variety of local organizations, initiatives, and projects as featured below.
