Opening Town Hall - What makes a well-connected, safe, accessible, and affordable transportation network so that all Harris County residents can access opportunities?

This assembly-style session will include the entirety of the participants present and ask us to think creatively about our transportation network and what is needed to make our communities well-connected through multiple transportation options.

Breakout Session - Accessibility How does the quality of infrastructure affect mobility? What role does the county play in addressing the ability of all people – regardless of size, age, or disability – to navigate and use transportation-related infrastructure?

Breakout Session - Affordable Transportation Options: Walking, Biking, and Transit What affordable transportation options are available to me? What role does the county play in investing and building such infrastructure?

Breakout Session - Hike and Bike trails What long-distance trail options are available to me to hike and bike throughout Harris County? What are the opportunities for the county to expand this type of infrastructure?

Breakout Session - Road Safety for All How can different county departments work together to make the road safer for everyone – rollers, walkers, bikers, commercial vehicle drivers, and personal vehicle drivers?

Breakout Session - County Civics: Transportation EditionThis session will provide information around transportation initiatives, including road safety, that the county is responsible for. Participants will get a better idea of funding streams, policy initiatives, and opportunities for civic engagement and participation in those programs and departments.
