Webinar: FTA Outreach to Tribes on Government to Government Training
Date: January 7, 2020
Time: 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm MT/2:30 pm to 3:30 pm ET
Cost: Free
Organization: National Rural Transit Assistance Program

The Department of Transportation aims to reaffirm its recognition of the unique relationship between the U.S. government and Indian Tribes. In addition to policy changes, such as the recently proposed rule on the Tribal Transportation Self-Governance Program, federal employees need direct training. FTA Program Administrators and Tribal Liaisons must be trained on how to work with Tribal transportation programs while recognizing the sovereignty and right of self-determination of Indian Nations.

The purpose of this interactive discussion is for Tribal representatives to engage directly with FTA on Government-to-Government training needs. This webinar provides an opportunity for tribal participants to provide direct input and feedback on the development of Government-to-Government training programs for FTA Tribal Liaisons and FTA decisionmakers.

The webinar will be moderated by Donovan Gomez of Hopi Senom Transit and Jenny Rowland of Big Woods Transit/Bois Forte Band of Chippewa, current and former members of the National RTAP Review Board respectively.

Webinar: Assessing the Impacts of New Mobility on Cities
Date: January 22, 2020
Time: 11:00 am to 12:00 pm MT/1:00 pm to 2:00 pm ET
Cost: Free
Organization: Transportation Research and Education Center (TREC)

Autonomous vehicles (AVs), e-commerce and the sharing economy are rapidly changing land use and transportation in cities. City leaders and professional planners are wondering how these technologies will change how they plan and operate cities. For the past year, the University of Oregon’s Urbanism Next Center and Sustainable Year Program focused staff and students on helping the cities of Gresham and Eugene better understand the potential impacts of a wide-range of topics and  study a variety of potential responses to address the challenges and take advantage of the opportunities. These topics include issues related to safety, social equity, active transportation, sustainability and environmental impacts, design and management of the right-of-way, and the metropolitan footprint. In addition, the cities thought about city operations and budgeting and how they can inform decision-making, manage innovation, and consider the fiscal impacts and new mobility revenue.

During this webinar, the Urbanism Next researchers will discuss the research they conducted to help the cities navigate new mobility and emerging technologies. Researchers will discuss how cities are preparing for new mobility and autonomous vehicles in a way that supports goals around land use, active transportation, more equitable forms of travel, and greenhouse gas emissions.
