  • The Record Downtown, 104 SW A Street, Bentonville, AR 72712

You are invited to attend a lecture on transportation and mobility by Mr. Jarrett Walker. The event is presented by the Northwest Arkansas Regional Planning Commission with the support of the Walton Familly Foundation, Ozark Regional Transit and the American Planning Association, Arkansas Chapter.


Jarrett Walker, PhD, is an international expert in public transit network design and policy. He has been a full-time consultant since 1991 and has led numerous major planning projects in North America, Australia, and New Zealand. He is President at Jarrett Walker + Associates, based in Portland, Oregon, and Principal Consultant with MRCagney in Australia.

He is the author of the popular public transit blog HumanTransit.org, and the book “Human Transit: How Clearer Thinking about Public Transit Can Enrich Our Communities and Our Lives” (Island Press, 2011). This book is a friendly, non-technical introduction to transit’s underlying geometry, and the real value judgments that must be explored to make both transit and development policy. His background integrates an arts and humanities PhD (Stanford, 1996) with long technical experience in all aspects of transit and its role in city-building. He is a frequent keynote speaker, teacher, and facilitator of decision-making processes.

Please join us for this event!


Light snacks and refreshments will be provided.
