Transportation Conference

July 28 – 30, 2020

Marriott Country Club Plaza | Kansas City, Missouri


Planning for the National Regional Transportation Conference and National CEDS Forum is on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Our event planning team is monitoring information from the CDC and state public health sources so we can prioritize attendees’ safety. We have worked on some great agenda content that we hope to share with you, but we advise that attendees not make any travel arrangements for the time being.  We will keep the website up to date and will send email updates as more information becomes available.

In the meantime, please also check out our RDO COVID-19 Resource Center for timely updates and practical information.


Plan to join peers from across the U.S. for networking sessions, panel presentations, and training workshops on current projects and trending topics in rural and small urban transportation. The conference welcomes regional transportation planners, mobility professionals, state DOT representatives, and local and private sector partners. The National Regional Transportation Conference agenda will feature a variety of sessions applicable to individuals with years of experience and those who are just beginning their transportation careers.
