David Cooper, Calgary Transit Planner, will be presenting an Intensive Introduction to Transit Planning. David is a Registered Professional Planner and a member of the Canadian Institute of Planners, and has taught on transit planning and transit-oriented development at the University of Calgary.
David will present the role of transit in the community, what makes up a transit system, principles of transit friendly design, and how service is planned (bus and LRT). The presentation will be interactive, and there will be two activities: 1. How to plan a transit route, and 2. The great transit debate: how to provide service to our community stakeholders.
