Convenient Truth: Innovative Urban Solutions From Curitiba, Brazil

11:38 PM PST on February 15, 2015

From TransForm:

This month Transition Silicon Valley is bringing back one of their all time favorite Films of Vision and Hope. A Convenient Truth shows how creative and forward-looking urban leaders in Curitiba, Brazil transformed their city, converting major problems into innovative solutions. The work in Curitiba continues to influence urban planners around the world.

It’s a great time to take a new look at the film, because one of the major innovations it highlights is bus rapid transit (BRT), which is now a hot topic on the Peninsula. Learn what Curtiba did to make a difference, including why dedicated BRT buses and lanes are so important for increasing ridership and better serving the community. You'll also hear from folks active in pushing for BRT locally.
