5/7 - Advocating for and Creating Effective Public Transit

Having greater access to transit is vital for the functioning of safe, equitable, and environmentally friendly cities. But what makes for effective transit? How do you advocate for it? And how can cities utilize buses to create fast, frequent and reliable service? Join the Maryland Department of Planning and the Smart Growth Network at 1 p.m. Thursday, May 7 as Christof Spieler, author of Trains, Buses, People: An Opinionated Atlas of US Transit, and Steven Higashide, author of Better Buses, Better Cities: How to Plan, Run, and Win the Fight for Effective Transit, explain how to make better use of our current transit systems in clear ways for decision-makers, philanthropists, activists, and public agency leaders.  Participants of this free live webinar are eligible for 1.5 AICP CM credits.
