U.S. Secretary of Transportation Anthony Foxx Visits the Silicon Valley Leadership Group

The Silicon Valley Leadership Group hosted a CEO roundtable conversation with U.S. Secretary of Transportation Anthony Foxx on Thursday, January 5 at the Silicon Valley Leadership Group Offices.

During his visit, Secretary Foxx talked with approximately 15 representatives from government transportation agencies as well as the private sector about transportation concerns ranging from technological advancements in the autonomous vehicle space to flexible guidelines for the safe design, deployment and testing of these vehicles. The discussion also touched on federal funding for Caltrain electrification and the BART extension to Silicon Valley. The federal government already appropriated hundreds of millions of dollars to both projects and the group explored ways in which to continue this partnership with the new administration.
