Dr. Adonia Lugo

Adonia Lugo, PhD, Chair of the Urban Sustainability Department in Los Angeles participated in a panel discussion as part of the 3rd Annual Multimodal and Transportation Summit. Organized by the Center for Latino Progresses Hartford (CT) Academy, the Summit brings together local leaders, state legislators, transportation professionals, planners, engineers, construction firms, developers, students, and passionate citizen advocates to discuss the current state, known challenges, and the best future for the region’s transportation system. Lugo advocated for a more localized focus by the transportation industry. “It’s going to take time for transportation to shift from seeing itself as an industry to—not quite a service provider—but an active part of local economies. Part of that shift is going to be recognizing where there needs to be interconnection with other kinds of local economic activity,” she said, including housing and employment issues.
