For several years in my mid-twenties, the only dreams I had were transit dreams. I’d board a bus and it would break down by the side of the road. I’d be on a plane and discover it was headed to the wrong city. I’d stand at the subway doors and the train wouldn’t stop at […]Read more "TrIP Biennale Day 11: Transit Map by Judith Zissman"
Can commuting to work relieve stress? For the month of November, I wanted to see if this could be true. For 1 week I drove my car… For 1 week I road my bike… For 1 week I carpooled… For 1 week I walked… My TrIP to work one way is 3.5 – 4 miles […]Read more "TrIP Biennale Day 10: Biking to Work Is My No. 1 by Lindsay Agnew"
| By Dina Mack | Yes, the “A” is intentional in the title of this post The last TrIP I took was on Day 14 of the first TrIP project in 2013, resulting in The Sensory Space of A Bus.

| By Ivan Riascos | For my entry in the TrIP Biennale, I took several different buses, but as always I ended up at the Orlando International Airport. I realize TrIP is about the trains, buses, walking, and cycling in the Central Florida region, but one of the main arteries for people to come into this […]Read more "TrIP Biennale Day 7: instance |ˈinstəns|- noun 1 an example or single occurrence of something by Ivan Riascos"
| By Brendan O’Connor | A big part of my art practice involves taking something discarded and making it into something fabulous. That’s the plan anyway. But with my day to day work it’s sometimes a bit harder to polish an otherwise turdy moment. All those Instagrammers out there do it with the aid of a […]Read more "TrIP Biennale Day 6: Seeing SunRail through a Magic Filter by Brendan O’Connor"
You may be wondering what in the world happened to the TrIP blog. Aren’t we suppose to be pushing out a new post every day this month?!? You are right. Unfortunately, we had a little set back when I unexpectedly broke my arm (and my laptop) this past Saturday while riding my bike (and wearing […]Read more "Please pardon my break from our regularly scheduled programming #nopunintended by David Moran"
| By Leslie Wolcott | I talk about transportation and transit a lot. So much that I’ve recently joined Metroplan Orlando’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee. But, I haven’t actually ridden the bus that much. My husband rides more than me, so on November 4 I set out with him to go from home to UCF […]Read more "TrIP Biennale Day 5: Don’t Hush That Fuss – Everybody Talk About the Bus by Leslie Wolcott"
| By Courtney Reynolds | I have the best job in the world. I help people find a better way to work, like carpooling, biking, walking, and riding transit. I get to meet new people every day and do my bit to make the world a better place. The single objection that I consistently hear from […]Read more "TrIP Biennale Day 4: Ped in Pantyhose by Courtney Reynolds"
