Transform Transit

As part of my Leadership in Government Fellowship I created three tools. The Transit Data Primer is digital and the other two are only available in physical form.

Transform Transit: the Board Game

Transform Transit is a board game, an educational simulation, a form of therapy, and a call for help. Hopefully it will start conversations about how we can transform transit agencies, so they can provide the service we need.

A team of 3-6 players work cooperatively to advance projects through the approval process to completion. The number of moves a player has each turn depends on their morale level. On each turn everyone picks an event card that can require their, or everyone’s, immediate attention or impact their morale.

Game in action

The game will be available order later this year. The audience could be public sector employees, transit advocates, and public policy and transportation students. Or anyone who loves a cooperative board game about bureaucracy!

Transform Transit: the Zine

The final piece is a ‘zine about transit equity change-making written for an audience of fellow transit agency insiders. Just like old school ‘zines it is only available in print form. Please email me if you are interested in a copy.

If you have a copy, you can download the endnote links.
