This webinar features the work of two leading transit agencies in the vanguard of policy development and implementation for connecting transit to pedestrian and bicycle networks.
Presenters from Translink (Vancouver, B.C.) and TriMet (Portland, Ore.) discuss their agency's approach to prioritizing connections for people walking and bicycling.
Learn about the research and cost/benefit analysis Translink has done to make the case for increased investment in walking and cycling facilities, and how TriMet approaches pedestrian and bicycle network access and prioritizes improvements.
