Connections: How Would A More Robust Public Transit System Change Rochester?

Mar 3, 2016

How would a more robust public transit system change Rochester? And what would it look like?

The Community Design Center's Reshaping Rochester Series continues next week with the theme, Transportation as a Leveler. Two of the event's speakers join us on Connections to discuss the strategies they've used to improve public transit in cities like Tucson, Chicago, and Memphis, and how these successes have improved access to jobs, healthcare, and education. Our guests:

  • Mo Duggan, executive director, Community Design Center of Rochester
  • Roger Brown, creative Consultant, Community Design Center of Rochester
  • Steve Farley, Arizona State Senator
  • Jacky Grimshaw, vice president for policy, Center for Neighborhood Technology
