Human Transit: Public Transportation for Personal Freedom
Jarrett Walker
Author and Transit Planner

Jarrett Walker is an international expert in public transit planning and policy and the author of the popular blog HumanTransit.org. He consults in North America through his own firm Jarrett Walker & Associates, and is also a Principal Consultant with MRCagney in Australia. In his new book, "Human Transit," Walker provides planners, policy-makers and citizens with the basic tools, the critical questions and the means to make smarter decisions about designing and implementing transit services. Join MIT Visiting Scholar Aaron Naparstek for a conversation with Jarrett Walker, as he shares his vision of "abundant access," in which public transit might be brought back to a core purpose of expanding every individual's freedom to access the riches of their city.
