Does it really take years to study a transportation problem and years longer to solve it? Not if you ask these experts. From transit service planning to street geometry, there are times when pilots, testing and being willing to fail can greatly speed up the process. In this 90-minute workshop we will collaboratively explore the patterns and techniques of lean transportation planning. Co-presented with Young Professionals in Transportation.
