In October 2015, my Transit Network Design course returns for two sessions, one on the east coast, one on the west.
- Portland, October 22-23. TriMet has once again graciously agreed to host us at its downtown Portland offices. Early registration is now open at the course page.
- Philadelphia, October 1-2. This session will be hosted by Temple University. We are still completing final arrangements, and will make an announcement here and on the course page once registration is open.
The short course is designed to give anyone a grasp of how network design works, so that they can form more confident and resilient opinions about transit proposals. The course is ideal for people who interact with transit planning in their work but don’t necessarily do it themselves — including land use planners, urban designers, developers, traffic engineers, sustainability advocates, transit employees of all kinds, and people who work on transportation or urban policy generally. Advocates who want to be more realistic and effective will also find the course valuable, especially as a companion to my book Human Transit.
