A blog to watch: “Human Transit”

Yesterday, I discovered a new favorite blog, “Human Transit.”

The blog is by Jarrett Walker, a consultant at McCormick Rankin Cagney.  On the welcome post, he says:

Since 1991 I’ve been a consulting transit planner, helping to design transit networks and policies for a huge range of communities.  My goal here is to start conversations about how transit works, and how we can use it to create better cities and towns.

Just a few posts in, there are some interesting ideas and new approaches on the blog, topics including transit language (transfering vs. connecting) and online apps to help citizens understand transit planning issues.

I’ve added the blog to my feedreader and am looking forward to reading more of what Jarrett has to say.
