This Week: Shoup in Berkeley, What SF Can Learn From DC

In a light week on the calendar, SPUR looks at what SF can learn from DC, and Donald Shoup will be at UC Berkeley to talk smart parking policy.

Here are this week’s calendar highlights:

  • Wednesday: Join a SPUR lunchtime forum for a discussion on what San Francisco can learn from D.C.’s transportation innovations, from automated traffic enforcement to one of the most successful bike-share systems in the country. 12:30 p.m.
  • Also Wednesday: Donald Shoup, parking policy guru and UCLA professor, comes to the Ed Roberts Campus in Berkeley to talk about how we can revolutionize our cities by rethinking parking management. 7 p.m.

Keep an eye on the calendar for updated listings. Got an event we should know about? Drop us a line.

    The Shoup talk is at the Ed Roberts Campus right at Ashby BART, which I don’t think is directly affiliated with UC Berkeley. It appears to be hosted by TransForm.
