Wait, we can do that? Transportation, public space, and the future of bicycling in DC

Event Date:

DC is a city with ambitious transportation, health, and sustainability goals, which it intends to meet in part by encouraging more people to commute by public transit, bike, foot, and shared vehicles. How is the current use of public space helping or hindering these goals, particularly for bicyclists?

Join us on Tuesday, January 9th at 7:30 PM to engage with a panel of transportation industry experts and bicycling planners, researchers, advocates and participants from across the country, who will lead an energetic discussion about trends and themes related to use of public space and what that could mean for bicycling.  What are the best uses of public space (including roadways) for accommodating the growing volume of people who bicycle? Changes to traffic patterns, distribution of parking spaces, sidewalk design, and bicycle lanes are all part of the toolbox and discussion. Come prepared to participate!
