In a previous episode of the podcast, we talked about how metro Detroit’s economy is diversifying.
But the ways we get around town? We’ve been stuck in the same mode for a lifetime. And that’s almost completely being dependent and investing only in the car.
A recent piece in Planetizen talks about how we might, as a region, build a culture of transit. After all, even automakers themselves are embracing ways to get around that aren’t single-person owned vehicles.
And maybe it’s time our policies matched up?
Joining me to talk about it is Dave Gifford. He runs Transit Guide Detroit and is an advocate for transit in southeast Michigan. He’s the author of this piece: https://www.planetizen.com/features/112361-cultivating-culture-transit
