Presented by the Wagner Transportation Association (WTA) and the Rudin Center for Transportation Policy and Management

This panel will focus on innovative bus planning in the New York Metro area, and the unique challenges it presents to both policy makers and citizens. This topic is particularly timely given the recent progress being made in the installation of bus lanes and Select Bus Service in the five boroughs. Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) also has a place in the upcoming mayoral race, as most major candidates have publicly expressed their views on it.

Speakers include:
Eric Beaton, Transit Development Group Director, New York City Department of Transportation
Ted Orosz, Long Range Bus Planning Director, Metropolitan Transit Authority
Tom Marchwinski, Senior Director of Research & Forecasting at New Jersey Transit

Commentary from Mitchell Moss, Henry Hart Rice Professor of Urban Policy and Planning, NYU Wagner
