Cities are investing millions of dollars in creating mass transit but unable to achieve their full potential due the poor first and last mile connectivity leading to unsafe access to transit systems.
This webinar takes an experiential approach to address this issue through the utilization of a tool for community engagement and decision making. It focuses on creating an effective public engagement tool to develop ‘people centric’ station areas. It aims to educate the attendees regarding the need for safe access to the mass transit systems like BRT and Metro, and to derive actionable strategies around Station area (a 500 - 750 m radius area around the transit station).
