Talking Headways Podcast: <i>Verkehrsverbund</i> – A Seamless Journey

This week we're joined by Professor Ralph Buehler of Virginia Tech, who talks with us about the German transport concept of Verkehrsverbund. The word translated to English means "transport network."  We discuss where the first Verkehrsverbund was formed and how more integrated systems could make transport in the United States more efficient and connected. There's also a discussion about docked bike share as well as how we can think about mobility as a service platforms in the future and their relationship to existing transport systems.
