Regionally Speaking forum on the future of local transit
10 30 14
We recorded this show at Wicker Park Social Center in Highland Indiana, at a public forum on the future of public transit, sponsored by the Northwestern Indiana Regional Transportation Commission. This forum is part of a settlement in a long-running lawsuit brought by the local disability rights group Everybody Counts.
Host Steve Walsh moderated the forum which lasted for a total of five hours. During the show, we reached out to some of the transit operators to talk about some of the challenges they face.
We also heard from some of the people who stepped up to comment at the hearing.
The show begins with the heads of NIRPC and Everybody Counts. The two sides haven’t often shared the stage. We discussed the future of transit in northwest Indiana.
