This week we chat with Brian Reilly about integrating transportation and land use in Albuquerque, where a new bus rapid transit line, ART, forms a backbone of frequent and reliable service for the city's transit system.

Brian is the former economic development director in Buffalo and Cleveland, and currently the principal of planning consultancy Doing Good. He tells us about how Albuquerque is shaping development along Central Avenue (part of the historic Route 66), where ART runs, and how transportation policy fits into the city's poverty reduction strategy.
