Description

In a nation that ranks only 13th globally for infrastructure quality, the new focus in Washington on infrastructure investment has the potential to be transformative. For public transportation specifically--so vital to New York City and New York state, and drastically impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic--significant new funding stands to multiply the infrastructure investment with historic gains in equity of access, economic opportunity, and social justice for communities harmed by 20th-century infrastructure development. Hear transportation expert Robert Paaswell of CCNY and Michael Garner, chief diversity officer of the MTA, in conversation with City College President Vincent Boudreau on building a fairer future that benefits residents, riders, education, businesses, and minority- and women-owned enterprises.

 
Host: CCNY President Vincent Boudreau

Guests: Robert Paaswell, Distinguished Professor of Civil Engineering at CCNY's Grove School of Engineering and Director Emeritus of the University Transportation Research Center; Michael Garner, Chief Diversity Officer of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority and President of the New York (founding) chapter of One Hundred Black Men.

Recorded: April 21, 2021
