Let's Talk About Transit! 
a workshop on transit fundamentals

Whether you’re a transit fan or transit skeptic, this workshop is for you. Learn how transit works so you can shape Central Indiana's transit future. With lots of time for questions and answers, you’ll walk out the door with tools to think about transit and its impact on Central Indiana. During this fun, interactive workshop on the basics of transit planning, you’ll learn:

  • what principles create a good transit system
  • transit options for Central Indiana
  • how new technologies (like Uber and driverless cars) fit into the mobility mix
  • why transit is an important part of planning for roads and bridges

This workshop is free, but registration is required. Light breakfast will be provided.
