Future Innovations, Disruptions to Impact Florida’s Transportation Systems

By: Florida Chamber of Commerce

Changes in technology, expanding industries, international trade and population increases will all have an impact on the future of Florida’s transportation systems. These were just a few of the topics highlighted during last week’s Florida Chamber Foundation 2016 Transportation Summit in Miami.

“Florida’s transportation network must leverage technology t get people where they’re going quickly, safely and enjoyably,” said Jim Boxold, Secretary, Florida Department of Transportation.

During the day-long summit, attendees discussed the issues they believe are crucial to Florida’s transportation systems as the Chamber Foundation looks ahead to 2030, including:

  • An increase in workforce shortages in transportation-related industries,
  • The need for new funding sources, as fuel efficiency increases,
  • Statewide and local solutions for mass transit.
