City Leaders Wrestle With The Future Of Transportation At Pittsburgh Summit

Municipal officials from around the country grappled with changes in transportation, such as self-driving cars and rail safety, while meeting in Pittsburgh on Wednesday. This week, Pittsburgh is hosting 3,000 mayors and council members from around the country, as well as local leaders, for the National League of Cities’ annual City Summit. They’ll meet through Saturday to discuss the challenges currently facing cities and share best practices for energy efficiency, working with startups and increasing transparency.

On Wednesday, members of the Transportation Infrastructure and Services Committee met to address the ways technology is changing transportation – such as Uber’s autonomous vehicles, said Matthew Colvin, principle associate of federal advocacy for transportation for the NLC.
