People and Issues

You’re invited to a series of thought-provoking discussion with two of NYC’s leading transit observers, WNYC journalist Andrea Bernstein, Director of Transportation Nation and Ben Kabak, founder of the blog 2nd Ave. Sagas.

PROBLEM SOLVERS – Part 1

Wed, Feb 1, 6:30 pm Register Now

Who are the people who spend their days unraveling the millions of issues, large and small, of the most complex transit system in the country? Ben Kabak, dubbed “The Transit Authority” by The Village Voice, leads this series of one-on-one interviews. They tear their hair out, they love their jobs! – meet the men and women who solve the problems.

BACK OF THE BUS: MASS TRANSIT, RACE AND INEQUALITY

Wed, Feb. 29, 6 pm Register Now

WNYC’s in-depth radio documentary “Back of the Bus” explored issues of race and inequality through the lens of the nation’s public transit systems.  More than half a century after Rosa Parks and the integration of Alabama’s bus system, transportation policies still discriminate against people of color and people with low income. Andrea Bernstein brings together a panel of expert historians and social activists to discuss America’s mass transit racial divide.

PLANET UNDER PRESSURE: CLIMATE CHANGE AND MASS TRANSIT

Wed, Mar. 28, 6 pm Register Now

On the August Sunday after tropical storm Irene blasted through the five boroughs, New York City exhaled. Manhattan hadn’t flooded, widespread damage was avoided, and the subway system was not submerged in salt water, a fear that led to the unprecedented step of shutting down the entire transit system. Andrea Bernstein leads a panel of sustainability experts on the serious implications climate change will have on our mass transit network. Presented in conjunction with Planet under Pressure,” an international conference focusing on solutions to the global sustainability challenge.
