StreetTalks are LivableStreets’ discussion series. They are forums for learning, a time to discuss important issues and a way for us to gain feedback from the public. Explore our upcoming and recent events below.
We had record attendance at our seventh annual StreetTalk 10-in-1. Highlights of the evening included Barr Foundation and BostonBRT announcing the winning cities for bus pilots, the launch of the Longwood Area Report, and the public announcement of the Vision Zero Cities Action Plan Guide.
We all know our cities are changing fast. How are local agencies rising to the challenge to make sure we all keep moving?
Together with NACTO and TransitCenter, we brought national transportation leaders to Boston to learn how cities across the US are rethinking their streets to boost reliable and safe travel for people on foot, buses, and bikes.
Highlights from the 6th Annual StreetTalk at Old South Meeting House included the MA Vision Zero Coalition's release of their Vision Zero Progress Report for Boston, and 10 short-form presentations demonstrating design, strategy, justice, and real stories that are helping to improve the streets in Metro Boston for everyone.
Imagine saving two weeks on your commute every year... Dedicated bus lanes, signal priority, and other techniques that prioritize people on buses are essential ingredients to making this a reality.
We held a conversation with transportation experts on improvements already being planned for our bus system as well as an exploration of bus innovations being implemented globally.
