Highlights from GBC’s 2017 Transportation Summit

The Greater Baltimore Committee’s 2017 Transportation Summit on October 11, 2017 focused on the transformational impact of innovative approaches to transportation and its potential effect on travel in major urban areas and how innovative approaches could be a viable substitute for current modes of travel.
