Public transit will always be Caitlin Little’s “beast of burden.”

Think about some of the defining moments in your life – did you arrive at them by car, plane or bus? Caitlin Little is letting us ride shotgun for this glimpse into one person’s journey through life and how transit has moved them so far. Sure, there’s talk of cars filled with balloons and CDs coated in saliva – but there’s also an important call to action.

Favorite quotes from this talk See all

If we have accessible transit, multiple modes of transit, it makes our city thrive; a place that people don’t want to move from, a place that people want to move to. It helps folks out that don’t have the same resources as you. It makes it so that people have choice on the ways that they want to move through the world. — caitlin little
