Panel Topic: Trails for Transportation: Making Cities More Equitable for All

Summary of panel topic: Of the many ways urban trails serve their communities, one of the most significant is that they provide off-street transportation routes between neighborhoods. Well-designed trail networks create connections between people and the places they want to go, from schools and community centers to businesses and bus stops. Trails are free to use, always open, low-barrier (in that they don’t require special equipment or knowledge to enjoy), and a safer alternative to car-centric infrastructure. This panel will discuss how trails, in conjunction with robust public transit and safe streets, can make cities more equitable for all.
Moderator: Jon Kachmar: Portland Trails Executive Director
