I want to pass along a couple of virtual talks I have recently.
The first was to the Regional Transit Leadership Council in Milwaukee. I discussed the pre-coronavirus declines in bus ridership both nationally and in Milwaukee, what the coronavirus has done to transit systems, and how to reboot and rebuild bus ridership post-coronavirus. I highlight examples of good transit moves from Indianapolis, Columbus, and Kansas City. Please skip to the 7:00 mark to get to my talk.
Also, I gave a talk to World Urban Parks about global urbanization and the need for parks in the developing, as well as how developed countries will need to develop new, innovative ways of parks financing in an age of austerity (which many places were already experiencing even pre-coronavirus). Skip to about 5:50 to get to the start of the talk:
I hope you enjoy.
