Transport planning as freedom planning
Date:27 November 2018, 5:00pm - 27 November 2018, 7:00pm
What if we planned public transport with a goal of personal freedom? Join us at Auckland Conversations as we explore this idea with Jarrett Walker, one of the original designers of Auckland's new bus network. The challenge of public transit today is not just having good ideas but being able to explain them. It's crucial to integrate the task of planning with the tasks of explanation and of creating leading innovative processes that engage and empower the public.
