The 2017 Transport Chicago Conference will take place in Chicago on June 9, 2017. Petra Hurtado from Urban Breezes will be on the “Rivers Run Through It” panel. Check out the agenda and who else will be speaking!
The “Rivers Run Through It” panel will be moderated by Josh Ellis from the Metropolitan Planning Council: “Chicago’s rivers are having a moment. The Riverwalk, new riverfront development, and the city’s Our Great Rivers vision have helped turn more and more attention to our rivers. Water Taxi service and ridership continue to grow, as do opportunities for continuous river trail. With that comes questions – what is the potential, or upper limit, of waterborne transit on Chicago’s rivers? Can water taxis be integrated into the regional transit system? What can Chicago learn from global river cities with robust water-based transit? What obstacles face a Chicago River Trail? Can we achieve the Our Great Rivers stated 2030 goals of integrated transit on land water, and continuous riverfront trails?”
