Cities for people: Pedestrian and bike systems
Thursday, January 23, 2014, 6:00 pm

Helle Søholt, founding partner and CEO of Gehl Architects, the designer who introduced pedestrian plazas and biking opportunities to New York City’s Times Square and throughout Manhattan, suggests a new transportation balance between biking, transit, and cars.

To attend, email rsvp@architects.org with "Traffic 1/23" 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.
