The Transit-Walkability Collaborative – An Inter-Modal Strategy for Creating Strong Neighborhoods: Webinar
Webinar, 1 hour, 11am Pacific, 2pm Eastern
This America Walks webinar will include presentations and discussion from several members of the US-based Transit-Walkability Collaborative (TWC), the release of a Fact Sheet providing critical data to support walkability and transit advocacy, and the launch of a National Survey designed to collect information about existing local collaborations. It will start with an overview of the research evidence for the health, safety, and economic/equity benefits of walkable, transit-rich communities and will include presentations on some of the fundamentals of public transit and walkability advocacy, respectively, and demonstrate why there is such a powerful synergy between these two modes of transportation. A recent study of Transit-Oriented Development that identified effective policy strategies for improving walkability and transit service will also be presented.
