That means walking, biking, carpooling, and taking shuttles, buses, and transit more, and driving - yes, even in the signature car of Palo Alto - the Prius, less.

What role does land use play?
On Thursday morning, Dan will present his interactive forum on attractive residential and mixed-use density using pictures from downtown Palo Alto.

You will be asked to guess their density in Dan's interactive and captivating presentation.
