Designing Transit Cities symposium, November 19, 20

What do great transit cities look like and how can planners design them?

The Designing Transit Cities Symposium is a two-day event with experts from several successful international transit-oriented cities. By taking part, you can hear experts from Paris, Madrid, Zurich, Portland and San Francisco — cities with strong track records in supporting public transit, cities where transit supports good development and good development supports transit.

The out-of-town experts join local politicians, designers and transit experts, including Toronto Mayor David Miller, the chair of the Toronto Transit Commission, Councillor Adam Giambrone and Paul Bedford, a member of Metrolinx’ Board of Directors and the City of Toronto’s former Chief Planner, in series of panel discussions, presentations and workshops.

Although some of the events require admission fees, most events are free of charge and open to all members of the public.
