Human Transit: Public Transportation for Personal Freedom

Jarrett Walker is an international expert in public transit planning and policy and the author of the popular blog HumanTransit.org [1]. He consults in North America through his own firm Jarrett Walker & Associates, and is also a Principal Consultant with MRCagney in Australia. In his new book, “Human Transit,” Walker provides planners, policy-makers and citizens with the basic tools, the critical questions and the means to make smarter decisions about designing and implementing transit services. Join MIT Visiting Scholar Aaron Naparstek for a conversation with Jarrett Walker, as he shares his vision of “abundant access,” in which public transit might be brought back to a core purpose of expanding every individual’s freedom to access the riches of their city.
