Human Transit: Clear Thinking About Public Transit

6:00 p.m. | Monday, June 4, 2012

This event will take place in San Jose.

Jarrett Walker has been designing public transit systems for more than 20 years. His recent book, Human Transit, provides a guide to creating effective public transportation. While many people support transit in the abstract, it’s often hard to channel that support into successful transit investments. Walker will discuss how to define quality public transit and how to achieve it.  Book signing to follow. Co-presented with Island Press and supported by the City of San Jose.

AICP CM credits pending.
