Ed Fischer Presents at the Transportation Remix

The Transportation Remix party at the Oregon Electric Station on October 22nd was a great time.  The room was packed with over 100 people for the three hour event, and CAT’s valet bike parking was filled to capacity.  The event was part of the planning for Eugene’s new Ped/Bike master plan, covered earlier by WBE here.

The first hour of the event had a party atmosphere with an open bar and snacks, followed by three 20 minute presentations and then an hour-long question and answer session with the panel.  ODOT Bicycle and Pedestrian Coordinator Sheila Lyons did a great job moderating the event, and had much to add to the question and answer session.

Update: Alan Pitman over at EugeneCycles.org has also published a great writeup of the Transportation Remix. He even included a link that I’d forgotten to mention: Elly Blue’s article on Grist about the “Safety in Numbers” phenomena, which was a large theme in Ed Fischer’s presentation.

If you missed the party, or just want to live it again, take the jump for videos of the three presentations, copies of the presentation materials, and a slideshow!
