Highways, high speed rail and even bike lanes are on the agenda in Irving as transit leaders from around the world gather.
The 16th annual Transportation and Infrastructure Summit began Tuesday with a 10-mile bike ride along the Irving Campion Trails. It was symbolic of what everyone should do more of.
But the representatives from agencies such as the Federal Highway Administration and even local mayors are expected to spend the next few days discussing major policy issues regarding high-speed rail systems and the infrastructure of highways, bridges, airports and other transit systems.
"Right now when you think about the road congestion we have with cars you have to start thinking about other ways to get around whether it's bus service, rail or other modes of transportation. So it's important," said McKinney Mayor Brian Loughmiller.
There will also be a lot of talk about how to fund it all.
The summit runs through Friday.
