“Public transit is a powerful tool for addressing a range of urban problems. But while many people support transit in the abstract, it's often hard to channel that support into good transit investments. Part of the problem is that transit debates attract many kinds of experts, who often talk past each other. Ordinary people listen and decide that transit is impossible to figure out.”

Jarrett Walker, an international consultant in public transit planning, believes that transit can be simple if we focus first on the underlying geometry that all transit technologies share.

In this discussion on Tuesday, February 7 at Noon, Mr. Walker will detail how this “fundamental geometry” shapes successful systems; and leads to transit-friendly development.

Walker will address the key questions that should be addressed and debated within communities in order to create systems that are both resilient and useful for the communities they serve.

Jarrett Walker has been designing public transit systems for over 20 years. He is an independent consultant in North America and Principal Consultant with MRCagney in Australia.

He writes the popular transit blog

Like most people I live a hectic life and who has the time for much exercise? Thanks to xtracycle now I do. By using my bike for daily activities I can get things done and get an hour plus work out in 15 minutes extra of my time, not a bad deal and beats taking the extra time going to the gym. In case you are still having trouble being motivated; the National Center of Disease Control says that inactivity is the #2 killer in the United States just behind smoking. ( ) Get out there and start living life! I can carry home a full shopping cart of groceries, car pool two kids or just get lost in the great outdoors camping for a week. Well I got go, another outing this weekend.
