The focus of Cascade’s research program in transportation is to explore innovative, market-based mechanisms for providing transport services. Examples include privatized transit such as jitneys and bus service, privately built toll roads using electronic road pricing, congestion pricing of both public and private roads, and privatization of airports.
Cascade welcomed transportation expert Adrian Moore, Ph.D., Vice President of Policy for Reason Foundation, at a special event at Multnomah Athletic Club on April 29, 2015. Adrian gave a lively, informative, and interactive presentation on a variety of transportation innovations and road financing options. The discussion ranged from topics such as driverless cars to wireless transponders. If you missed the event, you can watch it here. We hope to see you at Cascade’s next event!
