Subways are the primary mode of transportation in New York, but we need new ideas for atypical travelers: those who live on the city's geographic and social edges.


From off-the-grid dollar vans and mobile apps for commuters with limited accessibility, to ambitious proposals to connect the boroughs' coastlines along ferry routes, we'll explore how ad-hoc systems, new technologies, and innovating with antique infrastructure can expand transit equity.

Participants: Eric Goldwyn, journalist; David R. Jones, president & CEO, Community Service Society; Sarah Kaufman, assistant director for technology programming, NYU Rudin Center for Transportation; Joanne Rausen, assistant commissioner, data & technology, NYC Taxi and Limousine Commission; Douglas Adams, COO, Metropolitan Waterfront Alliance

Conversation moderated by Jerome Chou, director of competitions, Van Alen Institute. The discussion will also include new ideas from the NYU Rudin Center for Transportation's Emerging Leaders in Transportation Fellows. 

Presented with the NYU Rudin Center for Transportation Poicy and Management
