Abundant Access: Public Transit as an Instrument of Freedom

February 6, 2014 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm


In this engaging lecture, “Abundant Access: Public Transit as an Instrument of Freedom,” Jarrett Walker will leads audiences beyond some of the distractions that sometimes dominate transit debates, to an understanding of public transit’s core power: to give people freedom.

Walker is one of the most innovative planners and advocates for public transit in North America today. He believes that transit can be simple, if we focus first on the underlying geometry that all transit technologies share, and that the forces that cause transit to succeed or fail often go unexamined in today’s transit debates. For architects, urban designers, housing and development professionals, transit is key to building successful cities, yet its essential task and the keys to its success are not always clear.
