Will Transit Benefit Everyone: Jobs, Equity and Access
Sun, 9 October 2016, 3:00 PM – 5:00 PM EDT
Join us for the first event in a series of youth-led conversations looking at how expanding transit can create equity in Indy communities.
This series will expand the conversation and educate youth and community on how other cities have strategically used infrastructure funding, new jobs and increased access to transportation to benefit economically distressed communities.
Additionally this topic is particularly relevant in light of the upcoming referendum on November 8th about whether to create an income tax in order to implement a proposed expanded transit plan.
Each forum will feature community members, transit experts and a speaker from another city.
These conversation are held in collaboration with Transportation for America with the aim of educating the public on transit.
