Mobility Dialogue Series

The Leonard Transportation Center is hosting a series of six educational and interactive breakfast dialog meetings to bring together community leaders like you in a discussion of how to best address the region’s mobility needs.

Each dialog will feature ideas and diverse opinions from well- known experts speaking on timely topics and an opportunity for you to engage with the experts and other participants.

You can sign up to attend as many of the dialogs as you like.

Registration fees are $30.00 and include breakfast and conference materials.

Breakfast will begin at 7:30 a.m. and each dialogue will start at 8:00 a.m. and end at 10:00 a.m.  This dialogue series is made possible through the support of HNTB Corporation.

The Workshop Series:

Mobility is key to the Inland Empire’s future economic growth and quality of life.  This dialogue series has been developed to address the numerous regional projects and initiatives designed to improve mobility. Advanced technology will be the dominant factor in our automobiles, rail transportation, the movement of freight, and the organization of our communities. Few will doubt the assertion the change we are about to face is at least as great in the 21st Century as was the transportation changes that occurred in the early 20th Century as we moved from horse and buggies to planes, trains, and automobiles.

As exciting as this impending future may be, it is very important to remind ourselves that we live in a democratic society in which an informed electorate is the best guarantee of a strong and stable society.  However, given the rapid pace of events, most people today are not informed about the many issues related to the immanent changes in our transportation infrastructure, few are aware the many transportation-related projects and initiatives, and fewer still are involved in any meaningful way in the decisions that are being made.  There are differing opinions regarding the magnitude of the problems and the relative merit of various potential solutions.  Moreover, there is currently no authoritative place that people who are not directly involved in ongoing discussions can go to obtain a comprehensive overview of our mobility needs, the related social concerns, and the projects and initiatives now being discussed to address them.

Logistics plays a major role in the Inland Empire of Southern California. The William and Barbara Leonard Transportation Center (LTC) is the voice for an integrated and sustainable transportation system in our region.

In 2019, the LTC will offer its second Regional Mobility Dialogue Series. The 2018 series was a wonderful success, bringing together policymakers and thought leaders from both public and private sectors as well as CSUSB faculty experts, students, and members of the public for a lively series of discussions. 2018 topics included ways of maintaining the region’s competitiveness and quality of life, emerging technologies affecting transportation, the role of rail and transit in our region, the advantages and disadvantages of congestion pricing, and ways to fund our transportation future.

I hope you will be able to join the Dialogue Series this year as a sponsor. In 2019, we will continue to address important transportation issues facing our community. Topics under consideration include:

  • Cyber security and potential threats into the traffic system
  • Electrification of semi-trucks and impacts on freight distribution
  • Smart-city concepts and their real life applications to transportation
  •  Infrastructure funding for the increasing number of electrical vehicles
  • The changing dynamics of transportation occupations and the affect on jobs

With your help, the Leonard Transportation Center can continue to offer this engaging series at low- or no-cost to participants. If you are interested in sponsoring the LTC Regional Mobility Dialogue Series, please take a look at our sponsorship packet and the options available to you.
