Sustainable Mobility Systems - Monday, November 11, 6PM

Traffic Advisory brings together leading regional, national, and international policymakers, architects, engineers, researchers, and planners to frame Boston’s mobility challenges and prospects in this new era of economic, climate, and social transformation. Don’t miss the opening sessions of this in-depth series, and mark your calendars for the upcoming transportation-focused design exhibition at BSA Space in December.
 

Sustainable transportation planning leader Jeffrey Tumlin, principal with Nelson\Nygaard Consulting Associates, whose work covers urban parking techniques, streamlined transit service, road diet, and overall transportation diversity, identifies transit opportunities for Boston.

To attend, email rsvp@architects.org with "Traffic 11/11" in the subject line.

Beginning in October and running through June 2014, the Traffic Advisory speaker series will mine sustainable transportation opportunities that support the Boston Transportation Department’s 2014 visioning process. The city plans to set policy that ensures every Bostonian will work and reside within a quarter mile of a transit station, bike share, and car share while reducing vehicle miles traveled by 7.5 percent in seven years. These changes may result in increasing foot, transit, and bike use to two-thirds for all city trips by 2030.
