Calling Presenters for TCC’s Transit Talks on December 14th


Each quarter Transit Talks, hosted by Transportation Choices, brings together experts, urbanists, and transit wonks in the Puget Sound to discuss hot button transportation issues. The next one will be Thursday, December 14th from 4:30 to 6:30pm at the Seattle City Hall, Bertha Knight Landes Room.

With new leadership in Seattle fast approaching, they’re crowdsourcing the best ideas from urban leaders around the sound on what will keep Seattle moving. From displacement, to infrastructure what should our new mayor prioritize in transportation? Their panel will share will share lightning round presentations–inspired by the Pecha Kucha format–of their brightest ideas for our new Mayor.

Open Call

Transportation Choices wants to hear your ideas for transportation in Seattle! They’re partnering The Urbanist to hold an open call for one presentation slot. This is your chance to share that spark of inspiration, or idea you’ve been chewing on. This could be a specific policy you’d like to see implemented, an issue you think needs more attention or a solution you’ve been dying to share. You’ll be in good company with presenters from every sector, including agencies, local organizations, and business.

To keep the ideas flowing we’ll be adapting the Pecha Kucha style presentation–think lightning round PowerPoints. Each presenter will get 5 minutes to share their idea, with 20 slides, 15 seconds per slide.

To be considered, submit a brief description of your idea, and its role in improving our transportation system to by November 30th. The Urbanist will select its favorite pitch and the winner will get to share a presentation about their idea at Transit Talks on December 14th.
