Entro Discusses Placemaking at Upcoming APTA Rail Conference

June 13, 2023


Rail Stations have long served as focal points for community activity and vitality. In the session "Transit Placemaking Strategies to Improve the Passenger Experience" at the American Public Transportation Association's (APTA) Rail Conference, panelists will speak to ways stations can serve that special role as they nurture community identity and provide facilities and systems that are readily usable and accessible to all.

Join Entro partner Anna Crider as she discusses the impact of placemaking and wayfinding for transit systems based on the development of the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) Branding and Wayfinding Master Plan, an initiative which introduces a new name and visual identifier for the network, as well as new route names, wayfinding signage, and maps.

Panel Topics:
State/Lake Station: Balancing the Needs of Modern Infrastructure with a Historic Downtown - Michael Lev
Updating the Station Experience from Outdated to a Destination - Janey Bell
Wayfinding Through Evolving Travel Patterns - Lex Powers and Anna Crider
Rail Stations as Activity Hubs - Rhonda Bell

Date: Tuesday, June 13, 2013
Time: 3:00pm - 4:00pm
Location: David L. Lawrence Convention Center, Pittsburgh PA
