Thursday, May 14, 2020 10-10:30a.m. (PDT)  

The COVID-19 public health emergency has drastically changed every aspect of California life, including reducing personal travel by as much as half in many regions. As a result, transportation revenues are plummeting because user fees produce a large share of resources needed to operate California’s transportation system. 

Join industry leaders as they discuss their research on the possible impacts of different scenarios for economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic on state-generated transportation revenues.
