Talking Headways Podcast: The Year Ahead in Transit, With Yonah Freemark

2:38 PM EST on January 13, 2014

Readers, rejoice! Perhaps you feared that you would never get to sit in on nearly an hour of transit talk between world-renowned brainiac straphangers Jeff Wood and Yonah Freemark. But ho! Fear no more.

This week, podcast co-host Jeff Wood and I got to chat with The Transport Politic's Yonah Freemark about the outlook for new transit projects in 2014. Building off Yonah's thorough (and colorful!) outline of the year's expected transit expansions, we talked about the projects we were most excited about, including some that have been a long time coming. And we take a look back at what kind of year 2013 was for transit.

This conversation was so good we went over our usual half-hour time slot and riffed for a good 50 minutes. Join the conversation in the comments.
