Streetcar Podcast

“Tuesdays at APA” is a lecture series run out of the American Planning Association’s Chicago office, and this week’s podcast of the series features a great discussion of Streetcars (mp3, 15.8M), both vintage and modern types and the role they play in shaping communities.

There’s a great description of the experience in Portland, with a great narrative on why developers invest near streetcars but not buses (not anything we haven’t discussed here before, but articulated in a clear way).

The presentation slides are available here.
