Recently, Tamim Raad was invited to speak to the public as part of the City of Calgary's Green Line LRT Lecture Series. The Green Line speaker series was developed to provide insight into key principles that are shaping the way Calgary plans and designs its city for the new Green Line LRT.
Over the past 20-30 years the city of Calgary has seen tremendous growth, both in jobs and population. Transit ridership has followed the expansions of the LRT network, averaging 320,000 passengers per day in 2016; the highest LRT ridership per capita in North America.
Tamim participated in a panel of experts from across North America to discuss how mobility options have been shaped in other cities and explore how Calgary's future growth and transportation can develop to provide new options for urban mobility.
