Transportation

Mobility is central to individual prosperity, as well as to commerce and to the growth of communities. Whether it is city streets, commuter highways, rail lines, or ports, the work of cities requires attention to both the existing transportation network, and the emerging trends that will shape the future. NLC’s resources in this area focus on streets, bicycle paths, traffic management, and public transit along with the ways in which technology has and will shape tomorrow’s transportation system.
