Talking Headways Podcast: Get Off My Lawn
Posted By Tanya Snyder On December 12, 2013 @ 11:39 am In Buses,Cincinnati,Podcast,San Francisco,Streetcars,Transit,Urban Design | 3 Comments
Jeff Wood and I talk about the news of the week that most tickled us or burned us — the BBC’s exposé of anti-social urban design features  intended to repel people, San Francisco’s social tensions  over the Google bus, and the decision by Cincinnati’s new mayor and City Council to “pause” construction  of the streetcar. (Update: The streetcar might be salvaged !)
Meanwhile, I wax nostalgic for public space in Havana and Jeff laments slow progress on San Francisco’s Geary Boulevard BRT.
