Jaime Lerner in NYC Oct 15

Urban Acupuncture coverHere’s your chance to learn from a fella behind the modern bus rapid transit (BRT) movement, Jaime Lerner, former mayor of Curitiba. As students of urban transport, we have all had Curitiba’s BRT system flashed before us as a model of how the developing world can innovate in the face of severe constraints. But how did it happen and what did it take? Mr. Lerner will be speaking about this project and many others in his new book Urban Acupuncture at the Museum of the City of New York next Wednesday at 6:30 PM. Hope to see you there, register here.
