Free Sept. 24 FVSN Forum Looks at Local Transportation And Impacts of COVID-19

The Fox Valley Sustainability Network will be exploring sustainable transportation — including how these modes of transportation have evolved with the impacts of COVID-19 — at a free Sept. 24 webinar open to all.

Sustainable transportation benefits human and environmental health. With both of these being high concerns, FVSN will bring together a group of speakers to discuss the trends and new programs accessible to those in Kane County.

The Transportation Forum will be virtually held from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 24.

Shared Use Mobility will begin the forum with regional and national trends, helping us understand what has changed since COVID-19 came into our lives.

What do we do with this information? Apply it to Kane County as the Kane County Division of Transportation has done.

KDOT has worked to create bikeable and walkable community for those living and traveling in the county. And now, the Kane County Bike Share program has launched to make this a possibility for even more people.

Beyond bike paths and river trails, the Kane County Department of Planning will expand on traveling by canoe with the Fabulous Fox River Water Trail.

The event is free for all to join. Register in advance to receive the webinar login details.
