At Foursquare ITP we believe that learning from and sharing our knowledge with others in the industry is a key part of achieving our vision of better communities through leadership in transportation planning. In recent years, we have had the pleasure of presenting our work at the Transportation Research Board Annual Meeting, the American Planning Association National and local conferences, Rail~Volution, National Association of City Transportation Officials conferences, Better Bike Share conferences, the Institute of Transportation Engineers local conferences, and the Women’s Transportation Seminar National conference, among others.
