We often think of public transit as an all-or-nothing thing: Your city is either ready to invest billions in an amazing rail system, or you might as well just give up on having any meaningful transit. But that’s not the case. Any town, big or small, can take incremental steps to grow and improve a public transit system that helps residents get around easily and comfortably.

On this tour stop, transit expert Jerome Horne talks with Strong Towns Staff Writer Asia Mieleszko about the many small steps you can take to make transit more viable in your city, whether you work for city government or you’re just a regular person who cares about your community. From building bus stop benches to considering bus rapid transit, this session will open your mind about the many ways we can improve public transportation, whatever size budget our cities may have.

The course is worth 1 continuing education credit through the AICP.
