Setting the Table for Transit

Local officials have more influence over transit than even they think they do – largely because cities represent the constituents for which transit is most vital, control the streets that the vast majority of transit runs on, and shape land use policy that can support, or hinder, high-quality, useful transit.

In this session, see how cities across the country are setting the table for transit by connecting stations with pedestrian-friendly streets and sidewalks, supporting land use that enhances access to destinations by transit, and by creating action plans with clear, trackable metrics. In transit-forward cities, these pieces come together to support the development of transit-first decisions both within a transit agency and by the agencies that control the infrastructure that transit depends on: streets and sidewalks.
