Pedestrian Dignity Tuesday morning

From La Crosse Area Transit Advocates:

On Tuesday, April 18, AARP will host Jonathon Stalls (@pedestriandignity on Instagram and TikTok) for Pedestrian Dignity Experiences throughout Wisconsin in April. Pedestrian Dignity events center the lived experience of all who walk, use a wheelchair and take transit as their primary form of transportation. We will move with the many gaps and opportunities facing all who walk, roll and use the bus in car-dominated built environments. Participants will be invited to connect to one another around pedestrian behavior related to practical trips (origins/destinations) and co-create solutions and next steps around what can be done to protect, honor and care for today's pedestrian. All who are involved in policy or planning that affect the daily lives of people that walk or roll are invited to attend.

The 90-minute Pedestrian Dignity Experience in La Crosse will begin at 10 a.m. at The Eagle Watch Area on Rose Street just north of W. Gregory Street. A second start point has been added at the Bridgeview Plaza bus stop (#6 bus)!

LATA encourages everyone who is able to attend this event. A limited number of free bus passes will be available for those who start at the Transit Center at about 9 a.m.

Please join us on the #6 bus leaving the Grand River Station Transit Center at 9:12 to participate in this important event!
