Transportation and Communities Summit History

Established in 2009, the Transportation and Communities Summit was originally known as the Oregon Transportation Summit. It is our flagship event and has become the Pacific Northwest's premier transportation conference.

The Summit has brought together professionals from all areas of transportation: planners, engineers, advocates, policymakers and community leaders.

Expanded to a two-day event in 2016, it now offers interactive workshops along with breakout sessions, networking opportunities, and popular keynote speakers who offer an outside-the-industry perspective. The event has grown rapidly, and continues to grow as we draw in professionals from all over the United States.
