From Here to There: Talking transportation in your neighborhood


No Comments (Leave Comment)

Tomorrow I will be in the Central District talking with neighbors about transit in their neighborhood.  This event is the second in a series on the topic – the first was March 29 in Lake City. 

Tomorrow’s conversation in the Central District will feature Bus Chick, a hip mom living car-free in Seattle. Also included on the panel are Mark Hallenbeck from the Washington State Transportation Research Center, Jennifer Weiland from Seattle Department of Transportation.

At our last conversation, folks gathered at the Meadowbrook Community Center to talk about what is working and not working for getting around in their neighborhood.  Participants’ conversation focused on how we can make our transportation system work better for the whole family, and many shared that bus schedules and frequency of rides are common obstacles to using transit now. 

We were also joined by OneBusAway staff member Kari Watkins who shared how the technology works.  Almost half the audience said that it was the recent transportation development that they have  been most pleased with.

These dialogues are supported by the Pacific Science Center who is hosting a series of fun events to engage adults in conversations about Science.  Our partnership is part of an effort to discuss how we are going to make our city carbon neutral.

Live in the Central District?  If so, join the discussion tomorrow!  We will be joined by and Bus Chick! 

Food and child care will be provided.
