The Street Trust’s 2022 Active Transportation Summit was Monday, April 25th through Wednesday, April 27th, 2022. Watch recordings of the virtual sessions.

Each year, hundreds of professionals and advocates from Oregon and SW Washington convene to discuss cutting edge transportation issues. The Summit is the place to share your latest research, project triumph, and innovative idea among colleagues and friends. The 2022 Summit is a hybrid event: keynotes, plenaries, presentations, and panels will be primarily virtual while networking events, mobile workshops and a range of study tours will take place in person.

The guiding theme for the 2022 Summit was Our Transportation Future.

Content was sorted across four tracks: Justice & Equity, Resilience & Recovery, Accessibility & Safety, and Technology & Innovation.

COVID Protocol: Your health is a top priority for us, and we’ve done our best to accommodate your safety needs for this event. There is a completely remote option. For those of you who can attend our in-person events, those will be outside and semi-outside with social distancing. If you’re planning to attend one of our in-person events, please bring your vaccination card and mask. If you feel sick, please stay home.
