Equitable Transit-Oriented Development Symposium
The Pittsburgh Branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland in partnership with Port Authority of Allegheny County will host a symposium on equitable transit-oriented development (ETOD) on August 24, 2016. This event will bring together researchers and practitioners from across the country and the region to share data and best practices, fostering discussion about the future of ETOD in Pittsburgh.
ETOD promotes healthy and prosperous communities in which diverse groups of people have mobility choices and greater access to opportunities. Where people live is a key measure of affordability, of which transportation is a significant factor. During the symposium, regional and national experts will demonstrate through data, case studies, and lessons learned how ETOD has been achieved in other markets. This event aims to further the discussion around ETOD in the Pittsburgh and Allegheny County region, including its path forward.
