Sustainability Through Regional Transit Programs
Public transit is a powerful tool for regions looking to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions from transportation. For public transit to succeed, however, the built environment must be designed to support it. Tonight at APA, Fred Hansen, of Portland's TriMet transit agency, will discuss how coordinated transportation and land-use planning can result in compact, efficient cities. He will also talk about what transit providers are doing to "green" their own operations, further enhancing their regions' sustainability.
