Wait, planners/developers, I'm not talking about this.
I'm talking about this--Transit Oriented Drinks (TODs)! It's an event I came up with as a way to end a long semester on behalf of our planning student group, the Crescent City Shapers at the University of New Orleans.
What is it? Well, of course, it's a pub crawl that's completely dependent upon transit. Bars on transit lines win out, as does the transit agency.
It sounds to me like a great way to break in bus-wary people and to have them warm up to public transit. This also sounds like a good scheme to support Metro in light of its recent cutbacks. Who wants to spread it to St. Louis?
Speaking of Metro, how was the MetroBus funeral?
