Ready your quarters….Transit Oriented Drinks is next week: Friday, November 13, 2009. Ask a 2nd year MURP and they’ll tell you: taking transit was never so fun! This event, deeply rooted in planning theory and modern transportation planning ideals, is a great opportunity to socialize with your colleagues, familiarize with yourself with the various modes of public transit as well as some of the city’s finest drinking establishments.
