Chris Dempsey, Director, Transportation for Massachusetts

Please join the Taubman Center for State and Local Government and the Rappaport Institute for Greater Boston for the next session of the Planes, Trains, Automobiles, Buses, and Bikes (PTABB) seminar series. Greater Boston was recently ranked as the metro region with the worst traffic in the United States, with congestion impacting the economy and quality of life. Other regions of the country are tackling this problem head-on by putting a price on driving, with an aim to improve the experience for drivers and transit riders and to make meaningful progress on air-pollution and climate goals. Learn more about the potential for equitable road pricing in Massachusetts from a leading advocacy voice for statewide transportation reform. Chris Dempsey was formerly Assistant Secretary of Transportation for the Commonwealth. In that role, he co-founded the MBTA’s open-data program, which was named Innovation of the Year by WTS-Massachusetts in 2010. Chris has also worked as a consultant at Bain & Co., on a number of local and statewide political campaigns including that of Congressman Joe Kennedy III, and at a transportation technology startup that provides mobile ticketing for transit systems in New York, Boston, and Los Angeles.

This event is co-sponsored by the Taubman Center for State and Local Government and the Rappaport Institute for Greater Boston.
