Ride the Bus with Steven Higashide
November 18, 2020 | 3 – 4p.m.
Join the Ride the Bus virtual event to discuss transit equity, access, and equality. Downtown On the Go is looking forward to chatting with Steven Higashide, an urban planner, transportation researcher, and author of Better Buses, Better Cities: How to Plan, Run, and Win the Fight for Effective Transit. The conversation will focus on the topics of urban inequality and climate change in relation to how to make bus service better. Also joining us will be Marquis Mason, the Climate Justice Community Organizer for Citizens for a Healthy Bay, and DOTG’s own Advocacy & CTR Coordinator, Laura Svancarek. Learn how transit planning and infrastructure affects underserved and underrepresented riders, and how improvements can be made to ensure equity and accessibility.

Each year we invite elected officials and community leaders to ride the bus. These events give community members the chance to ask questions and hear from decision-makers while riding on our regional transportation system.
