The topic of this issue of The Florida Chamber’s Bottom Line includes the transformation of transportation, changes in technology and the need to embrace new ways of connecting people to their destination.

“Transportation is going through a real transformation stage right now.  Technology is going to play a big part in how we use our infrastructure, how we optimize throughput and how we connect the different modes.”
