More on kids and transportation

• A Portland dad discusses the need for family friendly transit (via: Streetsblog).

• Dorea of Carfree with Kids shares her tips for raising good walkers.

It occurs to me, after reading the Portland dad’s arguments and all of the comments on my last post, that is might be worth it for PT-loving parents to collaborate a bit. I’m thinking that–in addition to offering support and sharing information–we could probably come up with a list of best practices to help transit agencies better meet the needs of families.*

If you’re interested in working on a project like this, hit me up, and we’ll, as my friend Aileen says, “tawk.”

*Since most US agencies are in dire financial straits at this point, we probably can’t expect them to take suggestions that cost a lot of money, but I don’t think all (or even most) of the recommendations would have to be costly. Besides, the agencies won’t always be broke (I hope!), so it can’t hurt to put the expensive ideas out there.
