THE 2001 SPRING CONFERENCE
Transportation users are demanding better performance and productivity from transportation systems, organizations, and people. Individual transportation professionals and their employers are being challenged as never before to meet or exceed customer expectations by:
Managing and operating the existing transportation system to minimize delay caused by ever increasing traffic volumes and incidents
Reducing the number and severity of crashes and their impacts on individuals and society
Assuring that transportation organizations and people are performing at the highest levels
To provide transportation professionals and organizations with the necessary tools to meet these challenges, the 2001 ITE Spring Conference, Improving Transportation Performance and Productivity, will be conducted March 25-28, at the Hyatt Regency Monterey in Monterey, Calif., USA. This will be the 17th in a series of annual ITE conferences to provide transportation professionals with information on what can be done to meet current and future challenges by learning from the experiences of others and by taking advantage of opportunities. Exhibits of transportation products and services at the Conference will expose attendees to some of the latest advancements in the industry. The information generated at this conference will be critical to transportation professionals employed by federal, state/provincial, regional and local government agencies, consulting firms, universities and industry.
