On-line materials for Community Design Group's December 4, 2009 presentation, hosted by Transit for Livable Communities and Bike Walk Twin Cities highlighting and exploring best local, national and international practices for encouraging year-round non-motorized (walking and cycling) transportation.
Choosing transit as a family When I was young, my grandfather would take me and
my sister on bus rides to the end of the line just for fun! Now I am a parent
making transit work for my family and a transportation policy researcher by profession.
Forecasters say by 2030 the Twin Cities area will be
home to nearly a million more people than in 2000. Yowza, we better be smart -
more transit-oriented development, more pedestrian and bicycle
facilities, and more courtesy all around.
