Jarrett Walker, one of the foremost thinkers on the design of public transportation, is coming to Palm Tran this Thursday.Jarrett_Walker_Flyer_pdf This is an exciting opportunity for our bus system to reimagine itself along the lines of a system like Houston, which managed to dramatically increase frequent service with the same operating dollars and make the system incredibly more useful to riders.

I believe Palm Tran is a county asset that isn’t being fully leveraged as it stands now. If the county is to grow in a more enlightened way and provide better transportation options, buses need to play a big role.

This is a good event for transit advocates, Palm Tran riders, or just those interested in how we can grow without becoming Miami Dade or Broward Counties.  Kudos to new Palm Tran director Clinton Forbes and the Palm Tran Service Board for taking big first step.

Please share with others you think would be interested in this event.
