NACTO Policy Statement on Automated Vehicles

Tuesday, July 12th, 2016

NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF CITY TRANSPORTATION OFFICIALS (NACTO)
Positioning new mobility services to provide access and mobility to all, and to buttress rather than undermine the successful transit lines at the heart of our cities, is vital to realizing the value of fully automated vehicles for mobility. At the same time, policy at every level of government should address head-on the destructive potential for increased traffic, emissions from additional driving, and on-street congestion that could easily result from automated vehicle technology.

Streetfilms: Austin Goes Bike Gold – LAB Makes Austin first Gold City in Texas

Thursday, February 4th, 2016

A few months ago, I was in Austin, Texas for the NACTO 2015 Summit. Although I was quite busy and we got hit with a major rainstorm of epic proportions, I was able to shoot enough video to put together a limited look at what is going on in the city.

Janette Sadik-Khan on The Infra Blog

“We’ve come a long way from where we were 50 years ago, and yet a lot of the design guidance for city streets is routed in back in the 1950s and the 1960s. In order to create a word-class environment for people, you need to have streets that reflect 21st century needs and that are safe and that perform well and are diverse and economically performing.”

In fact, it wasn’t uncommon to hear murmurs that Boston was the worst cycling city in the U.S.
