From Model D Media:

Join us Thursday, May 26 to learn about the future of transit and cycling in the city. Panelists include Kenneth Cockrel, Jr., Detroit City Council; Todd Scott; Michigan Trails and Greenways Alliance (MTGA); Kelli Kavanaugh, co-owner of Wheelhouse Detroit; Robin Boyle, Wayne State University and Carolyn Helmke, Chicago-based transportation consultant.

The program will take place at the Wayne State University Law School at 471 West Palmer in Midtown Detroit. Doors open at 5:30 p.m.; program begins at 6 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. Please register here.

Anyone who comes by foot, bike or bus will receive a nifty bicycle patch kit from Wheelhouse Detroit. It’s our little way of saying thank you for using alternative modes of transport.

This Model D Speaker Series event is presented by Model D Media, MSHDA and Wayne State University.

    May have to excuse myself from class, depending on what will be covered.

    The last event I went to on campus, titled “Eds and Meds”, also the last day I went on a bike ride on March 3rd (too long to be without a ride!), it seemed like more of a self-promo, unfortunately. Mostly what the lady from Henry Ford talked about was H.F. and herself.

  2. Todd Scott Says:

    My presentation will be mostly on Detroit biking projects. Carolyn will be talking about world biking trends and how they might affect Detroit.

  3. Dave Says:

    How long will it last do you guess?

  4. Todd Scott Says:

    My guess is about 90 minutes
