Concurrent Session: Is Walkable TOD Possible with BRT

March 03, 2021 10:30 am – 11:15 am (GMT-05:00) Eastern Time Concurrent Session

Charlotte is the only city in the Carolinas that has a functional light rail system. For most other communities looking to improve mobility for their residents, the solution will likely look more like Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) or an automated cousin. How will this lighter-weight investment attract urban-scale investment to its corridors? This session will explore national examples that will help to answer that very question. Be forewarned, the answer is much more nuanced and complicated.
