    • Orange County's streetcar moving forward. (OC Register)
    • Meanwhile, Kansas City's streetcar authority is worried about those thin e-scooter wheels gumming up the rails. (KCTV)
    • The Chicago Tribune looks at the future of Divvy in Evanston.
    • Baby Boomers get everything — but now that they're old, they may actually get us stuff we all need, like better pedestrian infrastructure. (Mother Nature Network)
