Three Smart “Smart City” Pieces

This week’s Smart City podcast features three different stories that grabbed my attention:

  • The show leads off with a discussion of the interplay between housing costs and transportation costs, and how some consumers seeking lower housing costs may actually wind up pay more overall when commuting costs are factored in.
  • About 22 minutes into the show, a piece about a beltway park in Atlanta makes the point that buses are transportation, but rail is an amenity (a point absolutely overlooked by the transit agency).
  • 29 minutes in, another interesting piece on the characteristics of successful rail stations.
