Human Transit: How Clearer Thinking about Public Transit Can Enrich Our Communities and Our Lives

May 27 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

Transportation expert Jarrett Walker believes that public transit can be simple, if we focus on the underlying geometry that all transit systems share. Jarrett’s gift is being able to break down the basic principles of transit so that you may have the tools necessary to clarify and advocate for your own values.

In 2011, Jarrett published Human Transit which became a classic for professionals, academics and NGOs advocating for sustainable transportation. He recently released his updated and expanded book to further deepen his initial explanations. The content moves into new territories, such as the problem with specialization; the role of flexible or “demand response” services; how to know when to redesign your network; and responding to tech-industry claims that transit will soon be obsolete. It also has a major new section exploring the idea of access to opportunity as a core measure of transit’s success.

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear Jarrett discuss the revised edition of Human Transit and offer guidance to achieve successful public transit that will enrich any community. Your questions will be answered and you’ll receive a 30% discount on his new book, too!
