Description:

Have we reached peak driving? Planning for future travel in the Chicago region

After a half-century of increases in car ownership, solo auto commuting, and roadway congestion across the Chicago region, the last decade has seen auto use stall or decline according to most measures. Have we truly passed “peak driving,” or did recent economic conditions merely hit the pause button? CMAP and the Northwestern University Transportation Center invite you to a panel in which transportation experts will discuss this question and its implications for planning, policy, and infrastructure decisions through 2050.
