Our region’s transit corridor investments are creating opportunities for improved mobility, better access to job centers, and economic growth. Over the past two-and-a-half years, the Corridors of Opportunity partnership has brought together regional leaders from the public, private, and non-profit sectors to activate development along transit corridors while ensuring these investments reach people across the income spectrum.

At this event, U.S. HUD Office of Sustainable Housing and Communities Acting Director Salin Geevarghese discussed how we move forward to grow a prosperous, equitable, and sustainable region. Following the plenary, breakout sessions focused on equitable transit-oriented development, regional equity and community engagement, and transit investment to advance opportunity.
