Roger Millar, WA Secretary of Transportation - to Headline Conference

 

We are proud to announce Roger Millar will be headlining the Cascadia Rail Summit in November!

Millar joined WSDOT in October 2015 and was appointed Secretary of Transportation in August 2016. He oversees an agency that is the steward of a multimodal transportation system and responsible for ensuring that people and goods move safely and efficiently. In addition to building, maintaining, and operating the state highway system, WSDOT is responsible for the state ferry system, and works in partnership with others to maintain and improve local roads, railroads and airports, as well as to support alternatives to driving, such as public transportation, bicycles and pedestrian programs.


Secretary Millar
Millar is an experienced land use and transportation engineer, planner and program manager with an international reputation for innovative approaches to conservation and development. The prominent theme that has run through his career has been planning and implementing transportation systems that are not ends unto themselves; but rather, the means toward economic vitality, environmental stewardship, social equity, public health and aesthetic quality.

His work on the Portland Streetcar and the Glenwood Springs to Aspen Bus Rapid Transit system provided communities nationwide with new modal tools. His National Complete Streets Coalition leadership helped create a national movement for transportation systems that are safe, convenient and pleasant for all users, regardless of how they choose to travel. His state Department of Transportation leadership is bringing innovation to agencies with enormous influence on transportation investment.

 
 
Dr. Anthony Perl, Professor of Urban Studies, Simon Fraser University

 

We are proud to announce Dr. Anthony Perl will be speaking at the Cascadia Rail Summit!

Anthony Perl is a professor of urban studies and political science at Simon Fraser University. His current research crosses disciplinary and national boundaries to explore the policy decisions that affect transportation, cities and the environment.

His findings have been published in numerous political science, environmental, urban and transportation journals. He has received awards for outstanding papers presented at the World Conference on Transport Research and the Canadian Transportation Research Forum.


Dr. Perl
He has also produced five books including New Departures: Rethinking Rail Passenger Policy in the Twenty-First Century (University Press of Kentucky 2001) and his latest book, co-authored with Richard Gilbert, Transport Revolutions: Moving People and Freight Without Oil (New Society Publishers 2010).

He has advised governments in Australia, Belgium, Canada, France and the United States on transportation and environmental research and policy development. He is a member of the Board of Directors of VIA Rail Canada and chairs the intercity passenger rail committee of the U.S. Transportation Research Board, a division of the National Research Council.


 
 

 
 
Join business and political leaders including Washington State DOT, Sound Transit, King County, Microsoft and others working to bring state-of-the-art high speed rail to the Pacific Northwest. A HSR system linking Vancouver, BC, Seattle and Portland, OR, would be a game-changing asset for the economic future of the region and state. Early feasibility studies have demonstrated the market viability of the concept and confirmed that it could be successfully developed and operated.

This Summit will build on those studies, create momentum for the project, and begin the important planning, financing and governance work to bring it to reality. Join us in Seattle this November to help make it happen!

 
The Summit takes place at Microsoft headquarters
