Tonight: Get on Track With the Future of Transit in Denver

The massive FasTracks rail and bus system is nearly built, with four new rail lines and a bus rapid transit route connecting Denver to Boulder opening next year. FasTracks will connect the city’s suburbs with downtown and Denver International Airport, but what about transit routes that help people travel within the city itself? As Denver’s population grows, its decision makers will have to meet that challenge by providing efficient, convenient options for everyone.

What will that look like?

Tonight, the Congress for New Urbanism’s Colorado chapter is looking into what’s next. They’ll host a panel discussion at the University of Colorado’s Denver campus called “Where are we going? How will we get there? The Future of Transit in Denver.”

From CNU Colorado:

The Denver metro region continues to grow at unprecedented rates. Are sustainable transportation options keeping pace? How is Denver thinking outside the box, in terms of transit and active transportation? CNU Colorado invites you to participate in this timely panel discussion with presentations from experts in the fields of urban planning, transportation planning, and active transportation.

So come to the University of Colorado’s Denver campus, 1250 14th St., room 480, at 6 p.m. to take part in the discussion. The panelists should make for a well-rounded discussion (and not just because I’m one of them):
