DALLAS: “Agenda for a New Dallas” summit

On March 19 at the Dallas Museum of Art, the Coalition for a New Dallas will host an “Agenda for a New Dallas” summit, this time focusing on transit. We’ll talk about the destructive impact freeways had on neighborhoods. We’ll discuss public transit and how changing bus routes can change efficiency. (Rice University professor Christof Spieler, whom we interviewed about his public transit almanac late last year, will give a keynote speech about this topic.) We’ll also discuss rethinking the design of our streets, to make them safer for pedestrian use.
