Let’s Save Michigan and the League held the first "Twitter Talk" event this afternoon in Lansing. This hour-and-a-half session on Michigan’s vision for a new transportation system generated constant tweets from several organizations throughout the state. The dialogue continued long after the participants had left the physical event.
Questions came in both from people sitting around the table and from Twitter, making it easier to reach a broader audience in real time.
Here’s some of the conversation:
- One innovation is to link State infrastructure banks with public-private partnerships that go beyond just transportation #MiTransVision
- #MITransVision MI is home to a bi-national public bus system that uses the Detroit/Windsor tunnel. Should be connected to broader system.
- Rep. Doug Geiss pushing Highways 2.0 ideas that marry system and technology. #mitransvision
- Over 20,000 households in Detroit do not have a car or access to transit. Imagine waking up w no options to get to work. #mitransvision
