Talking Headways Podcast: The Transportation Innovation Revolution
Shin-pei Tsay of Transit Center joins me this week to delve into her new report, A People’s History of Recent Urban Transportation Innovation, which examines how advocacy and political leadership have combined in several American cities to produce a more multi-modal transportation network.
We discuss the cycle of change, why mayors and local activists (who Transit Center calls “the civic vanguard”) are so important to the process, and what the advocacy scene looks like in the different cities profiled in the report, including Portland, Charlotte, and New York.
So listen in and hear from Shin-pei about the six strategies advocates can follow to encourage more transportation innovation. There may or may not be a Voltron reference in there.
