This Is A Big Deal For Us Transportation Folks

This is a really cool opportunity for anyone interested in transportation. Futurewise, ALSC Architects, Coffman Engineers, the Neighborhood Alliance, Spokane Transit and the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture (MAC) are teaming up to bring you the "Complete Streets Transit Zine Launch Party" on August 8. The party will feature not only a beer and wine garden (isn't that enough to get you there?) but also free appetizers, the latest 'zine on transit usage in Spokane, a display of Spokane's historic transit system and- the main event- a presentation by Jarrett Walker, author of “Human Transit: How clearer thinking about public transit can enrich our communities and our lives.” Walker is extremely knowledgeable on the subject and a renowned transportation planner.

The fun starts at 6 p.m. in the MAC's outdoor plaza. Click the picture below for more info.
