Don 't miss this great opportunity to see PBS's new transportation documentary, Beyond the Motor City. This screening is a part of a multi-city screening tour and will be followed by a panel discussin.
The film's issues will be familiar to you: it's an exploration of how America's historic decisions to invest in highways and automotive infrastructure has come, in many cities -- and particularly in Detroit -- at the expense of accessible public transportation, safe biking and walking, urban vitality and socially equitable communities. While focusing on the hard lessons learned in Detroit, the film also offers the hope that America's cities are now uniquely poised to shine a spotlight on -- and to offer sustainable and cutting-edge solutions to -- our nation's transportation obstacles.
Remember you can get there by transit! Some of us ride it, all of us need it!
