Explore the options being piloted in New York, as well as successful Bus Rapid Transit models around the world, in a discussion moderated by Aaron Naparstek, editor-in-chief of Streetsblog. He will be joined by Joan Byron of the Pratt Center for Community Development and co-founder of COMMUTE; Gene Russianoff, staff attorney for the NYPIRG Straphangers Campaign; and Bruce Schaller, Deputy Commissioner for Planning and Sustainability at the New York City Department of Transportation.
