SCCRTC Announces New Transportation-Related Speaker Series

The Santa Cruz County Regional Transportation Commission is pleased to announce the launch of its Innovators in Transportation Speaker Series. Through this series of educational and informative talks and  presentations, members of the community will have the opportunity to hear transportation experts from around the country discuss the innovations and trends that are shaping the future of transportation in Santa Cruz County and beyond.

The series kicked off on May 16 with speaker Jarrett Walker, international consultant in public transportation planning and policy, and author of Human Transit: How clearer thinking about public transit can enrich our communities and our lives.

“Through this new speaker series, we hope to deepen the community’s understanding of transportation issues,” said George Dondero, executive director of the Santa Cruz County Regional Transportation Commission. “With Jarrett Walker’s vast experience and knowledge in the public transportation sector, we felt he would be the ideal speaker to start off with. In his talk, he will describe the framework for how he approaches transportation planning, and how he would apply those principles in Santa Cruz County.”

The series will continue throughout the year with speakers sharing their expertise on a variety of transportation-related topics, including the evolution of SMART, housing and transit connections, and future transportation trends.
