DRAFT PSU CPID - Rethinking Bus Stops Transit Guide

This one-hour workshop will provide guidance on hor to re-imagine transit stops as community gathering spaces. People already spend time at transit stops – why not make them places where they can interact, take care of business, or just congregate even if they are not waiting for transit. The session will be led by Portland State University’s Center for Public Interest Design (CPID), who have been creating low-priced community gathering spaces across the world. The workshop will give real-life examples, information on some technical considerations and the process to create new spaces. SACOG, in partnership with SMAQMD, will also announce a small grant program for the design, fabrication and installation of one enhanced transit stop as a prototype.
