Critical Transit Podcast -- Episode 1

Promoting critical thinking about sustainable transportation, now in audio form. Featuring news, information and analysis of transit issues and services, focusing on planning, policy and operations. In this first episode, I discuss the same-old U.S. transportation funding bill and argue that the distinct between "choice riders" and the "transit dependent" is unhelpful. New York welcomes bike sharing, Boston moves forward with a plan to sell naming rights to its subway stations, and Toronto subway riders offer transit user tips.
