Belinda Woodiel-Brill, director of marketing and development at Knoxville Area Transit, will speak about “Critical Mass Transit: How Sprawling Development Affects our Lives and Transportation” at the next UT Science Forum Friday, February 6. Her talk begins at 12 p.m.
Development patterns assume car ownership affect us in more ways than just increasing our driving. There are social, economic and environmental repercussions that create a challenge for those who use mass transit. These factors also create challenges for mass transit system designers. As a user and designer of mass transit in a car-centric urban area, Woodiel-Brill will discuss ways of re-thinking about how we get around.
The UT Science Forum takes place in the Thompson Boling Arena Cafe, Rooms C-D and is free and open to the public.
