Transit Miami welcomes former writer (and my partner in The Street Plans Collaborative) Mike Lydon as he gives a lecture about parking and parking policy reform in South Miami this coming Wendesday, December 1, 2010. Mike served as a member of the City of Miami’s Bicycle Action Committee, where he helped spearhead the creation of the city’s first Bicycle Action Plan, and contributed to the creation of the first cyclovia in Miami, Bike Miami Days. He currently serves on an Executive Committee for Transportation Alternatives-one of the country’s leading active transportation advocacy organizations, and is a board member for the CNU New York Chapter.

    Very nice presentation. The South Miami community was engaged. It was also nice to have the mayor as an active participant in the conversation.

    I’d echo Guy’s comment. The surprising thing was that the audience knew what they were talking about and there wasn’t a knee jerk clamoring for more free parking.

    The speaker recommended 2 books: Traffic: Why We Drive the Way We Do by Tim Vanderbilt and The High Cost of Free Parking by Don Shoup.
