This one-hour webinar is a celebration of transportation throughout the Triangle. The 2022 Golden Modes program will focus on economic equity and transportation. Golden Modes will offer unique perspectives on sustainable transportation, travel options in the Triangle, and economic equity, featuring elected officials, community leaders, and area commuters. The connections between transportation options and economic mobility affect our communities more than some realize.

• Raleigh City Council Member Jonathan Melton discusses how future transportation plans are required to increase equity in our communities;
• Commuters and GoTriangle staff highlighted existing travel options resulting in the dramatic reduction of greenhouse gases by employees across the Triangle.
