We’re entering a brave new world with the transition to clean energy—one of challenge and opportunity. Few places is this more visible than in the world of transportation. While some people see the future as being primarily about electric vehicles, others are questioning our whole approach to getting around.
In this episode, we explore what transportation could look like in the future.
We’ll revisit the 2010 Olympics with Vancouver’s Transportation Planning Manager Dale Bracewell to hear how this temporary experiment in a mass shift of people out of cars showed what’s possible when we collectively point toward a common goal. We take a leap with Gordon Price, professor of transportation planning at Simon Fraser University, into a possible future where commerce, transportation, technology and the service economy could come together into a single transportation service provider.
