The March edition of TAAG’s “Learn about Transit” webinar will be on the topic of Multimodal Transportation Integration: A Framework for Sustainable Planning.
Learn about how providing viable, attractive transportation alternatives for citizens, including walking, cycling and transit, is critical in building a healthy, sustainable community.
Find out the framework of how each mode works individually, but also how they work together to create a balanced integrated network. Topics include how active transportation and transit go hand in hand, how transit is important to pedestrian areas, and how an integrated multimodal network contributes to the well-being and enjoyment to all users. A Questions and Answers segment will follow the presentation.
