NJ Spotlight News | October 23, 2020 | Transportation

The live part of the American Cities Rebuilding virtual conference has ended, but NJ Spotlight News will continue to post recordings of its discussions and films in the coming days and weeks. The conference — held Oct. 15-16 and hosted by WNET, NJTV and NJ Spotlight News — examined how cities in New Jersey and nationwide are faring during the COVID-19 pandemic and at a time of social unrest.

In this panel, MetroFocus host Jenna Flanagan talks moderates a discussion about the future of mass transit with Patrick Foye, chairman and CEO of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority; Crissy Fanganello, director of Smart Mobility, Panasonic Corporation of North America; Laura Fox, general manager, Citi Bike, at Lyft Bikes and Scooters; and Darnell Grisby, director of policy development and research at the American Public Transportation Association.
