Transit + Design: Lightning Round

We're improving the SPUR event registration process. 
Later this month, we will launch a new ticketing system. We ask that you register for each event you're planning to attend through the link in the Admission section below. This will help us keep you informed of any changes and better tailor our schedules and offerings. 


SPUR’s fifth annual Transit + Design workshops provide a space to learn about how inspiration, research and the right tools can drive action to design successful transit systems that keep the rider at the forefront. Come hear lightning-round presentations from talented designers and ambitious transportation agency staff to celebrate transit design successes that emphatically choose to put users first, throughout the Bay Area and beyond. Generously sponsored by TransitCenter.
