Swiss Consulate presents a Sustainable Transportation Forum addressing the future of Atlanta’s traffic and transit

Mark your calendar – next week is a free-to-the-public “Sustainable Transportation Forum” hosted by the Consulate General of Switzerland in Atlanta and Georgia Tech. Why is Switzerland talking to us about transportation? Because the Swiss have long since figured out the intricacies and efficiencies of public transit and are here to share with us Georgians.

Local and international transportation experts, business leaders and policy makers will explore solutions to Georgia’s growing transportation challenges in a three-part program covering:

  • The Future of Georgia’s Transportation Grid
  • What Choices Do We Have?
  • Where Do We Go From Here?

Expert presentations will forecast our future traffic capacity and transportation demands. Outstanding examples of sustainable transportation solutions from Switzerland – a world leader in passenger rail – will be highlighted. Political realities and financial constraints will also be explored.

  • What: Sustainable Transportation Forum: Georgia Officials Look to Switzerland for Transportation Solutions
