Public Strategies Breakfast: Big Challenges, Big Ideas For the Boston Region

The CREW Boston Public Strategies Committee (PSC) held its first breakfast panel of the year, focusing on strategies to address the region's growing transportation challenges.  The PSC welcomed Jessica Robertson, a senior planner with Utile, who introduced recent research and planning related to the region's transportation infrastructure with an emphasis on new initiatives; Alice Brown, Project Manager at the Boston Transportation Department, who discussed the City of Boston's citywide initiative to connect resident population centers with employment centers in the City of Boston; and Mary Skelton Roberts, Senior Program Officer for Climate at the Barr Foundation who discussed the Barr Foundations work and its emphasis on the need for Bus Rapid Transit (BRT).  Barr Foundation supported the recently published the report, Better Rapid Transit for Greater Boston: The Potential for Gold Standard Bus Rapid Transit Across the Metropolitan Area. Following the presentations, the panelists engaged in discussion with the audience regarding issues such as the infrastructure challenges associated with construction dedicated bus transit lanes; ways to balance bicycle, pedestrian, transit and SOV needs; and how the cities and towns in the region can work together to develop transportation strategies across borders.
