Presented with NYU Rudin Center for Transportation

Subways are the primary mode of transportation in New York, but we need new ideas for atypical travelers: those who live on the city’s geographic and social edges. From off-the-grid dollar vans and mobile apps for commuters with limited accessibility, to ambitious proposals to connect the boroughs’ coastlines along ferry routes, we explored how ad-hoc systems, new technologies, and innovating with antique infrastructure can expand transit equity.

Participants: Eric Goldwyn, journalist; David R. Jones, president & CEO, Community Service Society; Sarah Kaufman, assistant director for technology programming, NYU Rudin Center for Transportation; Joanne Rausen, assistant commissioner, data & technology, NYC Taxi and Limousine Commission; Douglas Adams, COO, Metropolitan Waterfront Alliance

The discussion included new ideas from the NYU Rudin Center for Transportation’s Emerging Leaders in Transportation Fellows.

This event is designated for AIA CES (1.5 LU). ASLA CES PDH/HSW (1.5 LU) is pending.
