Building Around Transit - Latest MHP Research and Potential Solutions

We have an acute housing shortage as well as some of the worst traffic in the country. At this Brown Bag we will discuss the latest report that ties the two biggest issues. We are hosting Calandra Clark and Lucas Munson from Mass Housing Partnership (MHP) to discuss their latest Research brief: Transit-Oriented Development Explorer (TODEX).

Some Snippets from the Research:

"Greater Boston needs a comprehensive vision that treats housing and transit issues in concert. Transit-oriented development strategies are at the nexus of these two critical public policy problems."

"By encouraging housing, jobs, services, and recreation in transit-accessible locations, regions can increase transit ridership, which in turn can serve to enhance the viability of transit systems thus increasing access to work and services."

Join us to know more about this research and explore ways to use this research for addressing housing and transportation issues.
