Thoughts about the relationships between transport and the urban area it serves
There has not been much activity on this blog of late. Possibly due to the paywalls on the mainstream media I used to read. When I saw this graphic on Gordon Price’s blog, I knew I had to use it.

I am a transportation economist and regional planner, displaced from England by the abolition of the Greater London Council and a dislike of Thatcherism. Until March of 2004 I worked for the Greater Vancouver Transportation Authority on wide variety of policy issues. None of these have been solved since I left, and the region has abandoned its long established growth strategy altogether, as the province expanded its major highways and is now proposing another new bridge over the Fraser. I have long advocated more sensible policies to better integrate transport and land use. And this blog is a way to keep up the pressure! It also allows me to vent a bit on related issues.
