Transit Network Design: An Interactive Short Course
This two-day course is designed to give anyone a grasp of how transit network design works, so that they can form more confident and resilient opinions about transit proposals.
The course is ideal for people who interact with transit planning in their work but don’t do it themselves — including land use and transportation planners, urban designers, developers, traffic engineers, and people who work on transportation or urban policy generally.
Through an interactive, iterative game, attendees will learn how transit planning and network design works, and what costs and consequences result from particular decisions.
Attendees will be eligible for 15 AICP certification maintenance credits.
Dates and times: February 6 & 7, 2014; 9:30 am – 6:00 pm on Thursday, and 8:30 am – 5:00 pm on Friday.
Location: Centre for Social Innovation, walking distance from Penn Station, 601 W. 26th St., NY, NY
Cost: $333 per person, with some discounts, thanks to a generous sponsorship by the Transit Center
