WHY THIS CONVERSATION MATTERS
It's time for a new kind of transit conversation. One that goes beyond committee meetings and deeper than surveys. After all, most of us didn’t go to school for urban planning. We don’t necessarily know the intricacies of different modes of transit or how important transit oriented development is to boosting ridership in a system, but that type of knowledge shouldn’t be a prerequisite to participating in the conversation about our region’s mobility future.
What we do know is that it can be hard to get around metro Atlanta and we’d like it to be easier. We know that most of us would like to have real options in how we move in our daily lives. Our stories, struggles and desires for a more connected Atlanta fuel the need for a genuine conversation with others who are equally excited by our city's potential. Advance Atlanta formed as a way to broaden the discussion around transit and connectivity, and make it more approachable and open for anyone who's interested.
Join us for dinner :: August 9th — November 8th 2016
You're invited to host or attend a dinner focused on regional transit. For three months, hundreds of dinners led by leaders across the City of Atlanta will discuss why transit matters, what connectivity means for our city and our individual role in helping to expand transit. We invite you to host a dinner with your neighbors, colleagues, peers and friends, or leave it open on the Civic Dinners platform for strangers (aka: friends you haven't met yet) to join in the fun. All you have to do is gather people for dinner and follow the host guide with questions for your conversation.
