Our popular Interactive Course in Transit Network Design is coming to New York on February 6-7!
The course is designed to give you a felt understanding of the geometry of transit and the questions it requires us to think about. It's ideal for anyone in the land use and development world, as well as people in transportation policy or advocacy -- anyone who needs to understand how transit can help build the city they are seeking, and how to create urban structures in which transit can succeed.
It's also, as one participant called it, "inexcusably fun."
Bigger news: Thanks to a sponsorship from the Transit Center, we're able to offer a significant discount for this session only. The two-day course, which is a $500 value, will cost only $300 if you register before January 15, and $333 if you register later. The tuition is unlikely to ever be this low again.
Still bigger news: Starting in New York, we intend to offer American Planning Association (APA) Credit (15 credit hours for the two days). APA members can earn a big chunk of your 2014 AICP Certification Management credits early in the year. We're excited about that, because the course is really for planners and city builders who need to understand how transit interacts with what they do, especially if they're not "transit geeks" themselves.
We'll be at the Centre for Social Innovation in the famous Starrett-Lehigh Building at 601 West 26th St, only 15 minutes walk from Penn Station. To make it easier to come to New York with just one overnight stay, we'll start at 9:30 on the Thursday and end at 5:00 PM on the Friday. Numerous hotels at various price levels are in the Penn Station / Chelsea / Meatpacking / Flatiron districts near the course venue.
Hope to see you in New York! And if you'd like the course offered in your city, see here!
