7th Annual Northern Virginia Transportation Roundtable (Virtual)

Sparking Conversation: Electrification and the Future of Transportation

Presented by the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority (NVTA) and The Intelligent Transportation Society of Virginia (ITSVA)

Sponsored by Cambridge Systematics

Wednesday, March 30, 2022, 8:00 a.m. – Noon

#TRANSPOTECH22

The 7th Annual Northern Virginia Transportation Roundtable, hosted by the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority (NVTA) and the Intelligent Transportation Society of Virginia (ITSVA), and sponsored by Cambridge Systematics, was held on Wednesday March 30, 2022, from 8 a.m. to noon. The Roundtable took place in a virtual format. There were two moderated panels, both highly relevant to the current TransAction update — Northern Virginia’s long-range transportation plan — and the update to NVTA’s Transportation Technology Strategic Plan (TTSP).

 

While the Roundtable was free to attend and fully virtual, registration was required. Due to high demand and limited capacity, the event was also live-streaming the event to NVTA’s YouTube Channel.

 

**A recording of the 7th Annual Northern Virginia Transportation Roundtable is available on YouTube.**

 

In addition to expert panel discussions, the event included Q&A, as well as interactive polling opportunities, during which anyone could participate, including those watching via YouTube. 

 

**Live polling results can be viewed, here.**
