Remaking Diridon: Lessons from the Netherlands and France

 

SPUR and the Knight Foundation recently organized a study tour of high-speed rail stations in the Netherlands and France for key decision-makers who are working to remake Diridon Station and the 240-acres around it. How can we replicate the successes that the French and Dutch have experienced, and what lessons can we apply at Diridon?
