Talking Headways Podcast: Taming Pittsburgh’s Hostile Streets

This week's guests are Breen Masciotra, transit-oriented development manager for the Port Authority of Allegheny County, and Karina Ricks, director of the Department of Mobility and Infrastructure for the city of Pittsburgh.

You'll also hear about how they're making a more walkable and multi-modal city through new bus rapid transit projects, transit-oriented development initiatives, and "eco innovation districts."
