Secretary of Transportation Elaine L. Chao will be headlining the opening session of the National Bike Summit on March 5, 2018. In her first year as Secretary, the Department of Transportation has issued a new quadrennial strategic plan, advanced the regulatory architecture for the safe deployment of transformative transportation technologies, including autonomous vehicles and has been engaged in White House deliberations on a trillion-dollar infrastructure proposal. 

Secretary Chao has identified her top priorities as:  safety, innovation and infrastructure. We look forward to hearing from Secretary Chao about her experiences in her first year, her plans for transportation in the coming year and how active transportation fits into those plans. Here is an excerpt from her official biography: “Secretary Chao understands the critical role of the Department in ensuring the safety of our country’s transportation systems. She is also keenly aware of the key role infrastructure plays in our nation’s economic competitiveness and in strengthening economic growth in both the urban and rural areas of our country.”

Sectretary Chao will be followed by a panel of DC city leaders and advocates speaking about the development of better bicycling in Washington.
