Imagining Access

How do you imagine the future of accessible suburban transportation?

Many greenway trails were designed for recreational purposes, not for daily commuting. When transportation is encouraged, it is usually in relation to public health and climate change, not disability or economic accessibility.

How might we design a new constellation of accessibilities- across economic, disability, weather, and historical patterns that are already in place?  How might we imagine it differently than it is now? Can we plan for radically different accessible futures that are not only car-focused?

Explore these ideas in a series of workshops -led by Jarah- that will assess one section of a local trail through audits, conversations, surveying and other hands-on design practices.
