Often dismissed by the general public, the humble bus is the underdog workhorse of public transit. Here in the U.S., buses have long been an afterthought in budgeting and planning, but it doesn’t have to be this way. Across the world, buses serve as the foundation of fast, reliable and inclusive transportation networks. The book, Better Buses, Better Cities, describes the implementable steps necessary to marshal widespread support and strengthen collaboration between everyone from community activists to transportation department heads in order to evolve the role of the bus on our streets. Join the book’s author for an inspiring look at why a better bus system can create a better city for everyone. Co-presented by Island Press.
