Abundant Access: Public Transit as a Tool for Freedom
ULI Triangle was thrilled to bring to our region a keynote presentation by Jarrett Walker, international consultant in public transit planning and policy and author of Human Transit: How clear thinking about public transit can enrich our communities and our lives.
Jarrett has written and worked extensively on the integration of public transit into community planning at all scales, from the design of small developments to the structure of an urban region. His work covers the entire spectrum of planning perspectives, from visionary urbanism to operational detail.
Prior to his presentation, Jarrett spent a few days in the Triangle learning about our region’s transit goals and challenges, and guiding a group of selected ULI members through a Transit Network Design Workshop. Three of the Workshop participants joined Jarrett at this program for a brief discussion of how the workshop process shaped or altered their views on transit networks.
Jarrett’s presentation was a wonderful opportunity to hear a new perspective on how we should approach our transit decisions. If you missed the event, you can watch it from start to finish here.
