Transportation, particularly the two- and four-wheel variety, has never sparked more conversation than controversy than in 2014.
Things changed rather quickly—quite literally overnight—when new buffered bike lanes recently appeared on Capitol Boulevard and Main and Idaho streets in Boise.
But none of this kind of rapid change happens in a vacuum; which is why we’re so intrigued by two upcoming presentations, sponsored by COMPASS, the Treasure Valley’s community planning association. Transportation guru Randy Knapick will help the public navigate through the tricky business of people-moving, with a particular focus on why technology is so integral in managing our transit systems.
The May 8 presentation will target a general audience, while the May 9 presentation is intended for community planners and project development specialists. Both sessions are free, but COMPASS requests RSVPs.
