Much of the current discourse on the future of urban transportation beats a fairly common path between Northern Europe and a few North American urban outliers. While often a very appropriate suite of places to look towards, this path misses an appreciation of efforts to provide higher-quality public transportation in other cities. In this webinar, Cole Hendrigan will look at examples of multi-modal urban transportation, the priorities (or lack thereof), the urban response and their human-scaled details. The results will show visual evidence of various design and policy approaches from cities not often cited in the discourse. The evidence will render more fully the world's transportation task ahead for this next generation.
