Tucson Talks Transit with Jarrett Walker
July 11, 2014 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
LSA is delighted to be one of the partner organization hosting a public lecture with transit guru, Jarrett Walker, on July 11th.
Jarrett Walker is an international consultant in public transit planning and policy, including the links between transit and all aspects of community planning and urban structure. His clients include transit authorities, cities, developers, and non profits – anyone who wants to make better use of public transit as a tool to support resilient communities and social inclusion.
In his twenty years of consulting experience he has also built a strong track record in a range of transit planning and policy issues, including bus- rail integration, Bus Rapid Transit, flexible services planning, and innovative public consultation. He has written and worked extensively on the integration of public transit into community planning at all scales, from the design of a small development to the structure of an urban region. His work covers the entire spectrum of planning perspectives, from visionary urbanism to operational detail.
He is also known for his work on educating stakeholders about the choices that transit requires, building clear consultation processes, and helping organizations form coherent and implementable transit goals. Since 2009 he has written the popular weblog HumanTransit.org, which has grown into an online collection of articles explaining key transit concepts and issues. His book, Human Transit: How Clear Thinking about Public Transit Can Enrich Our Communities and Our Lives, was published in 2011.
The public lecture begins at 6:00pm, but there will be a reception and information from local transit groups beginning at 5:00pm.
