Event description

Description

He's a transportation trailblazer.

He's Robert Poole, Director of Transportation Policy at the Reason Foundation and a renowned expert on surface transportation. He has advised four administrations on infrastructure. And his landmark 1988 policy paper paved the way for privately financed toll lanes to relieve congestion.

Among Poole's policy papers that introduced new concepts into the U.S. transportation policy world (some finding a home in Georgia):

  • Public-private toll concessions for highway projects
  • HOT (high-occupancy/toll) lanes
  • HOT/express toll networks
  • Dedicated truck toll lanes
  • Virtual exclusive busways
  • Managed arterials.

Poole discusses his new book, “Rethinking America’s Highways: A 21st-Century Vision for Better Infrastructure,” at a Policy Briefing Luncheon and Book Forum. Georgian Club. $50. 11:30 AM Friday, September 21. A limited number of books are available for pre-order at the discounted price of $20.
