"It's nothing to do with the population of the city and everything to do with - when you step off that transit vehicle, where are you?"
In this episode, Chuck welcomes back Jason Slaughter, producer of Not Just Bikes, to the Strong Towns Podcast, where they discuss one of his recent videos, “America Always Gets This Wrong (when building transit).”
Jason and Chuck go in depth about some of the absurdities of our modern transit system and the urban deserts they tend to drop riders off at—bringing to light some reasons why people don’t want to use public transit. They also debunk the reasons some DOTs use for why we can’t have better transit, and what the process for building efficient public transportation systems should look like.
