This week on the pod we’re talking about the future of public transit. Melissa and Boyce discuss some of the characteristics of their favorite public transit systems. They then welcome Ashley Z. Hand, the co-founder of Cityfi and former first Chief Innovation Officer for the City of Kansas City, Missouri.
Ashley explains Cityfi’s mission to facilitate sustainable change for people and the environment. Next, there is a discussion about how new technologies like self-driving cars might affect cities in the future, as well as how we can change transportation habits, particularly in places like Kansas City where people love their cars.
Finally, we discuss one of the major holes in Kansas City’s transit system: transit between downtown and the airport.
