We convened on Wednesday, April 6th for another episode of CoMotion LIVE! This webinar has a special focus on how dedicated bus lanes work in the city, looking at solutions that aim to serve the community through better safety, performance and accessibility.
Bus priority projects optimize transit ridership through improving network design and dedicated infrastructure. However, once the planning is complete and the ribbon has been cut, other elements come into play which can cause delays and interruptions for riders. So what are the factors that lead to a truly reliable bus service? Join us in a conversation exploring the issues that arise when developing a dedicated bus lane — and the innovative solutions which exist to improve safety, increase on-time performance, reduce operational costs, and serve the entire community.
We were joined for this discussion with Laurel Paget-Seekins, Leadership in Government Fellow, Open Society Foundations; Joshua Schank, Managing Principal at InfraStrategies LLC; Charles Territo, Chief Growth Officer, Hayden AI, and Anna Zivarts, Program Director, Disability Mobility Initiative, Disability Rights Washington and moderated by Sam Morrissey, Executive Director, Urban Movement Labs.
