This week we’re joined by Todd Litman, executive director of the Victoria Transport Policy Institute. Litman discusses his book "New Mobilities: Smart Planning for Emerging Transportation Technologies." We reframe the transportation investments we make, talk about sharing information, and discuss why air taxis might not be the future.
This week we’re joined by Dr. Jennifer Kent, senior research fellow in urbanism at the Sydney School of Architecture. Kent talks with us about why we travel, the effect of family on our travel behavior, and the idea of “messy trips.” But, mostly, we talk about how dogs effect people’s trip choices, whether they will get a car just for the dog or be willing to get rid of a car because the transit system will let them take their dogs.
