“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 HumanTransit.org.
Copies of Human Transit will be available for sale.
