Without a doubt, 2017 marked a period of profound change in the transportation sector. This should not come as much of a surprise as it is a dynamic time in our country's history. The cultural, political, and technological transformations sweeping the nation impact our transportation system and its industry and affect Eno at a very granular level. In this way, it compels us to be more astute and forward-looking.

That is how we approached the last year. Never satisfied to sit back and watch change happen, Eno and our partners worked tirelessly to understand a whole set of new trends and respond, plan, and act accordingly. It's that style of attention and ambition that's allowed us to be so impactful.

It's why our work to fundamentally reform our nation's air traffic control system reaches the highest levels of Washington policymaking and enjoys support from a diverse set of stakeholders.

Its why state leaders continue to reach out to us to help them figure out how changes in vehicles—automated, electric, shared—are impacting everything from the infrastructure they build, to the revenues they collect, to the safety of the network.

And it's why major metropolitan areas are working with Eno to steward a network of the most forward-looking public transit agencies as they learn from one another. Real discussions about the future of transit are happening in cities across the country—and across the world—and we are right in the middle of that.

But we cannot do it alone.

Eno benefits from a high-caliber, dedicated Board of Directors and an outstanding, active Board of Advisors. Our Board of Regents contributes significant time every year to help select the future leaders who participate in our annual leadership forum. Other partners, donors, and collaborators engage closely with us on working groups and other bodies. In this way, you are critical for grounding our work and ensuring proper focus.

As Eno approaches its centenary in 2021, we truly enjoy a unique position as the hub of a network of transportation industry leaders buoyed by a smart and dedicated staff with a solid reputation for credible, independent, and relevant work. Our opportunity is to continue to have impact today and continue to plan for an ever-changing future.
