Asking questions about our transportation future

We need to make significant investments in transportation in Pennsylvania but we can’t win any campaign for more funding unless we make a compelling case. Making that case begins by asking questions about what we need. If you could ask a question of a panel of thought leaders in transportation (like our panel on June 5!), what would you ask? Hit reply to let us know!

Lots of great questions will be posed to our PenTrans breakfast panel:

*Barry Seymour, Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission
*Ken McClain, PennDOT District Executive, District 6
*Rich Burnfield, SEPTA Deputy General Manager/Treasurer
*Chris Puchalsky, Office of Transportation & Infrastructure Systems for the City of Philadelphia
*Nick Frontino, Economy League
Moderator: Patti Gibson, WTS Philadelphia and Envision Consultants
Your questions will help identify the most pressing topics facing Philadelphia and Pennsylvania for further exploration at future PenTrans events.Thanks to our event sponsors!
