Keeping Up with Sprawl: How can high quality transit and suburban sprawl coexist?

About this webinar

As governments and property developers throughout North America scramble to keep pace with growth, the decades-old debate about how best to achieve sustainable growth rages on.

As market and political forces have ensured that sprawl is here to stay, the focus turns to mitigating the impacts through best practices in urban/landscape design and leveraging technology to connect communities in more sustainable ways.

This webinar focuses on the role that on-demand transit can play in mitigating some of the transportation challenges associated with sprawl; in particular, access to high quality public transit. We will take a deep dive into a successful case study and outline a process for how the public and private sectors can collaborate on delivering transit to new communities.
