I appear on The Week this week, discussing transportation with host Chris Riback, and other panelists Stephen Goldsmith (former Mayor of Indianapolis and Deputy Mayor of New York) and Barry Schulz of Atkins. Video clips of the discussion are available.
Some previous Transportationist blog entries are edited and reposted there for the new audience (5 Trends Shaping Transportation). The original is my 14 Trends Shaping Transportation post, which will make you 180% more informed.
So this is the answer to the question as to why I was in New York for 7 hours one day this summer.
