Bicycles as Transport- From Alternative to Mainstream
CES: 1.5 LU, 1.5 HSW
When: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM THURSDAY, AUGUST 12
Where: At The Center
Bicycles represent among the most sustainable forms of personal transportation. Cities such as Amsterdam and Munich have integrated the bicycle as a key component of transportation modes, and have developed infrastructure, regulatory, and cultural changes as a part of this shift. How can New York City make this transition from "alternative" to "mainstream?" This panel, with expertise in the fields of urban planning, transportation planning, and bicycle advocacy will attempt to answer this question through presentation and discussion.
