A forum to explore the multiplicity of financing options that exist at a time when additional federal funding is not a foregone conclusion. In many cases, Private Sector financing has become a complement to traditional Municipal financing that is accomplished primarily through the issuance of revenue bonds. All the modes of transportation are the subject matter of the conference. Innovations in each of the discrete sectors will be the subject matter. We look forward to a lively discussion of how to accomplish great outcomes in the current challenging funding environment.
