Cambridge-based LivableStreets is going to be hosting a series of talks on the steps of the State House and an opportunity to speak with regional legislators on providing better financial support for the very transportation system that provides vibrancy and value to our Commonwealth.
6:00pm-7:30pm @ DeLeo Senior Center, 35 Harvard Street, Winthrop, MA

Cities in Motion 2 is the much awaited sequel to one of the most comprehensive and engaging city/business/transportation simulators made to date. Hotly anticipated features include larger map sizes, multi-player support, schedule management of transport vehicles, dedicated bus lanes, and a more responsive city that will grow based on how well your transport system facilitates movement of your city's people. Take a look at the preview above - if you pre-order on Steam before next Tuesday, you immediately gain access to the Modern Collection DLC, which includes modern vehicles of each transport mode.
