Transportation Conference

July 2020

We are going virtual! 

After consideration of factors related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the NADO Research Foundation has made the decision to go virtual with this year’s National Regional Transportation Conference. We are at this time developing online offerings to share with you this summer in lieu of in-person meetings, originally scheduled for late July in Kansas City, MO. In addition, we will celebrate the accomplishments of the 2020 Excellence in Regional Transportation Award winners through a virtual presentation.

More details on the online National Regional Transportation Conference to be held in July will be available in the coming weeks on the conference webpage. Contact Carrie Kissel at ckissel @ or Rachel Beyerle at rbeyerle @ with any questions. We hope to see you in-person in 2021!


Plan to join peers from across the U.S. for virtual networking sessions, panel presentations, and 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.
