Next week, I will be in Washington DC for the Transportation Research Board (TRB) Annual Meeting, with more than 12,000 of my closest transportation friends. I have attended since 1997.
This year I am involved with the presentation of 7 research projects and 5 papers, including two workshops.
On Sunday, I will be presenting our Handbook for Building Livable Transit Corridors and Smart Growth Livability Calculator at the “Building Livability and Measuring What Matters Most” Workshop #166, building.
Here are some of the details, and great speakers I will be working with:
