Detroit is America's great comeback city. Downtown has been revitalized and the city is buzzing with an infectious new optimism and entrepreneurial spirit. Join us in this great American Renaissance city for the annual Community Transportation EXPO (June 11-15, 2017), your chance to collaborate with colleagues from around the nation and across the full spectrum of transportation service providers in a setting dedicated to fresh ideas, innovative products and services, networking and learning.

From traditional transit systems to non-emergency medical transportation [NEMT] providers, mobility managers to volunteer operators, EXPO is the confluence of the community transportation field. In addition to important legislative and policy discussions, there will be dozens of training sessions, workshops and networking events that will allow you to advance your understanding of issues, and develop fresh solutions and new approaches.

A special focus at EXPO this year will be preparing community and public transportation networks for emerging mobility models such as on-demand Transportation Network Companies (TNCs) – like Uber and Lyft – and autonomous vehicles. This will be the context of our special two-day Mobility Rising Symposium on June 12 & 13.
