Miami-Dade County to host the first TransportationCamp held in Florida

MIAMI ( May 09, 2019 )

Today and tomorrow, transportation industry leaders are participating in the first-ever TransportationCamp held in Florida.

TransportationCamp is a nationally leading program that started out of Mobility Lab in Washington D.C., with an aim to bring stakeholders together to build new collaborations around transportation and infrastructure projects.

The Miami-Dade Department of Transportation and Public Works Director Alice N. Bravo, P.E., is one of the transportation experts who will participate in a Transportation Equity Workshop to discuss how Neighborland worked with Miami-Dade County to identify transportation ideas that could be turned into action.

“I am excited to see the ideas proposed through Neighborland. This is a great platform where everyone has an opportunity to voice their creative ideas that could help inform the transportation planning process,” Director Bravo said.

Also participating at the camp are more than 100 transportation and land use planners, engineers, architects, researchers, public sector managers, elected officials and students – all interested in building new transportation and infrastructure collaborations.

SmartMiami partnered with Washington D.C.-based Mobility Lab's TransportationCamp to present TransportationCamp Florida. Miami’s unique theme is emergency management and equity as part of National Hurricane Preparedness Week (May 5-11, 2019).

Members of the Super Bowl LIV 2020 Host Committee are also participating in this event.

The camp aims to connect more than 10 municipalities, universities, startups and firms around transportation, exploring the themes of sustainable infrastructure, emergency management and transit-oriented development.

The camp is taking place today, May 9, and tomorrow, May 10, at Akerman LLP, 98 SE 7 St., Miami. For more information, visit tcampflorida.eventbrite.com
