SPUR’s Transit + Design Workshops provide a space to learn about the research and design tools that help create a great experience for transit users. Interact with talented designers around this year’s theme — “Putting the ‘Me’ in Transit” — and celebrate transit design successes happening around the region. Sessions will include how to co-design, how to listen to what riders need and how to make customizable transit maps.
