Public Transit Planner Jarrett Walker

Jarrett Walker presents Abundant Access: Public Transit as an Instrument of Freedom

 

What is the best bus network possible for our beautiful city? You might have considered it, or you might have heard what others have proposed, from our mayor to the person sitting next to you on the bus.

Jarrett Walker has considered and redesigned numerous public transit systems from all over the world, and he will be in Saskatoon this Saturday, March 12 at 7:30 pm at the Broadway Theatre to talk about his experiences. There will also be a reception after the event.

If you’re able to make it to the event, let us know what you think on our Facebook page, or at our next meeting.

Marianne is a lover of good public infrastructure, from rural roads, to city buses, to top-notch education systems. Born and raised in Saskatchewan, she hopes to spread solutions and ideas to make Saskatoon live up to its nickname: "The Paris of the Prairies." Also, she insists that people from or living in Saskatchewan call themselves "Saskatchewanites" rather than "Saskatchewanians". Alternatively, everyone in Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba could be called "Prairisians".
