PERIPHERAL PROPOSALS: Models for Commuting from the Margins

« All Events

Presented with NYU Rudin Center for Transportation

Subways are the primary mode of transportation in New York, but we need new ideas for atypical travelers: those who live on the city’s geographic and social edges. From off-the-grid dollar vans and mobile apps for commuters with limited accessibility, to ambitious proposals to connect the boroughs’ coastlines along ferry routes, we’ll explore how ad-hoc systems, new technologies, and innovating with antique infrastructure can expand transit equity.

Participants: Eric Goldwyn, journalist; David R. Jones, president & CEO, Community Service Society; Sarah Kaufman, assistant director for technology programming,NYU Rudin Center for Transportation; Joanne Rausen, assistant commissioner, data & technology, NYC Taxi and Limousine Commission; Douglas Adams, COO,Metropolitan Waterfront Alliance

The discussion will also include new ideas from the NYU Rudin Center for Transportation’s Emerging Leaders in Transportation Fellows.
