I’m heading to an interesting conference/workshop in a couple days in Seattle: it’s titled “sustainability and public transportation,” hosted by the American Public Transportation Association. I’m sure we’ll be reviewing some models that would be applicable to Tehran: bus rapid transportation, light rail, and sustainable development. Other topics such as transit oriented development (TOD) are probably less relevant, but should be interesting nevertheless.
I’ll post what we do at the workshop each day on tehranshake, so stay tuned.
More info about the conference can be found at: http://www.apta.com/conferences_calendar/sustainable/
If there’s anything in particular anyone would like to be discussed or asked about at the workshop, I would be happy to be of service – just let me know.
