How Can We Deliver Better BRT Projects?

12:30 p.m. | Thursday, August 1, 2019


One in a series of events on the SPUR Regional Strategy.

We're improving the SPUR event registration process. 
Later this summer, we will launch a new ticketing system and we'll be asking you to register for each event you're planning to attend. This will help us keep you informed of any changes and better tailor our schedules and offerings.

 

Bus rapid transit (BRT) routes are being proposed and implemented in growing cities and regions across the country in order to meet climate goals and improve mobility, but they are also notoriously hard to deliver. How can we learn from past mistakes? Hear from experts from around the Bay Area about the inherent challenges that should be recognized at the start of any project, as well as the keys for success.

Sponsorship payments will not be refunded, as sponsorship benefits take effect immediately and are on-going through the date of the event.

Auxiliary Services

If, in order to participate in a SPUR event, you need auxiliary aids or services for a disability (e.g., qualified interpreter, qualified reader, written materials, taped texts) please submit your request five business days before the event to publicprograms@spur.org or 415-781-8726 x132. SPUR will work with you in identifying effective auxiliary aids or services that it can provide. If you need to cancel your request, please notify SPUR at least two business days before the event.
