Thanks for the wonderful response to the New York offering of my Interactive Course in Transit Network Design on February 6-7. You still have time to register, but act very fast. Early bird discounts end January 15, and we have only 8 spaces left.
We'll have an amazing group representing five countries, with a diverse range of professions and backgrounds.
The course is designed to give you a felt understanding of the geometry of transit and the questions it requires us to think about. It's ideal for anyone in the land use and development world, as well as people in transportation policy or advocacy — anyone who needs to understand how transit can help build the city they are seeking, and how to create urban structures in which transit can succeed.
It's also, as one participant called it, "inexcusably fun."
Big news: Thanks to a sponsorship from the Transit Center, we're able to offer a significant discount for this session only. The two-day course, which is a $500 value, will cost only $300 if you register before January 15, and $333 if you register later. The tuition will likely never be this low again.
Still bigger news: Starting in New York, we intend to offer American Planning Association (APA) Credit (15 credit hours for the two days). APA members can earn a big chunk of your 2014 AICP Certification Management credits early in the year. We're excited about that, because the course is really for planners and city builders who need to understand how transit interacts with what they do, especially if they're not "transit geeks" themselves.
Hope to see you in New York! And if you'd like the course offered in your city, see here!
