On January 26, 2017 Eno will convene the second Capital Convergence conference. Last year’s CapCon focused on the potential of new innovations in mobility. Next we will focus on specific and tangible applications and how these advances are being implemented by cities and states often in partnership with the private sector. CapCon will draw on real-world applications from metropolitan Washington and across the country.
The Eno Center for Transportation will hold its 24th Annual Future Leaders Development Conference Fundraising Dinner on Thursday, June 9, 2016. Eno will honor Mortimer Downey - longest-serving Deputy Secretary and Chief Operating Officer of the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) - with a Lifetime Achievement Award, and Phillip Washington - CEO of Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority - with the Wilbur S. Smith Friend of Eno Award.
Each year, the Eno Future Leaders Development Conference (LDC) gives 20 of the nation’s top graduate students in transportation a first-hand look at how national transportation policies are developed. Students apply to the program early in the year, and those selected as “Eno Fellows” come to Washington, DC for a week in the spring of meetings with federal officials and leaders of business and non-profit organizations.
Transportation options that were once only fantasies are now at our fingertips. Traffic information is available on-demand, bicycles are commonly shared, and the prospects for self-driving cars have been increasing. Smart phones have enabled an array of mobility options including the ability to call a personal driver at the click of a button or to crowd-source the best possible route to a given destination.
