MOVE Roundtables

MOVE Roundtables work closely with local stakeholder groups to identify the on-the-ground context, examine a key local issue through the MOVE lenses (Mobility, Opportunity, Voice, Equity) and create momentum in a more collaborative and unified direction.


Is your region gearing up for a transit expansion or building a stakeholder network to support transit, land use plans plus community and economic development? Consider sending a delegation to our annual conference. Delegations use the conference as a launching pad toward stronger collaborative work on the ground.
