The Case for Transit

BY DOUGLAS FUNKE
@ VOL 19 ON MAR 14, 2018

"It was a streetcar network that reached into all the nooks and crannies of Buffalo."

In The Case for Transit from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 19, President of Citizens for Regional Transit (CRT) in Buffalo, NY, Doug Funke, recalls the days of efficient streetcar transportation in Buffalo, New York and advocates for improving the current public transportation challenges in the Buffalo Niagara region. The 1950's and 1960's saw a decline in public transport and a car-focused lifestyle with pockets of transit isolation. Funke and the CRT advocate for a return to a more climate-friendly and sustainable approach to public transportation.

This often leads to frustrations, hilarious situations and lots of emailing. Sanne Plomp remarks on the fact that for that reason, it's never boring.

PARK(ing) Space

BY ERIKA MASHIG
IN NEW WESTMINSTER

In her talk, Erika Mashig explains how the original “parklet” stood in place in a parking stall in San Fransisco for two hours – the maximum term of the lease offered on the meter. When the meter expired, the sod, bench and tree were taken away and the space resumed as a parking stall. She goes on to explain how this grass roots initiative has caught on, and evolved into what is known as a “parklet”- the transformation of parking spaces on the street into places for people to sit, relax, and enjoy the city.

No se pierda nuestro décimo volumen que, como siempre, estará lleno de inspiración. * Recomendamos llegar temprano para parquear cerca (si viene en carro) y coger buen puesto (si viene cansada/o)* Aconsejamos almorzar con abundancia o tomar onces generosas para que no sufra un asalto de hambre en medio de una presentación* El auditorio queda en costado Sur del edificio ML, que es donde quedan la Biliblioteca y el punto de encuentro de las banderas. * No hay necesidad de inscribirse previamente y la entrada es gratuita. ¡Nos vemos en PechaKucha!

The View Behind the Cafe

"Every week there are new items, objects, things, stuff that people abandon that people put out, leave out, the flotsam and jetsam of the modern age. It's just back there, new stuff all the time.
