Transit and the movement of people throughout an urban environment has historically been a subject of much debate and controversy among citizens, and especially between architects, designers and city planners. Transit has once again become part of the conversation of everyday people engaged in envisioning a better city. Three speakers from different backgrounds will look at historical precedents, current models, and the investigation of future transit plans here in Columbus to put the current conversation into the larger context. Individual speakers will give presentations on the history, the broader vision, and the current situation of transit in Columbus, Ohio. The presentations will conclude with a panel discussion and then open up for questions from the audience.
