City Notes on TV!

Last week, Ken Davis was gracious enough to invite me on his show, Chicago Newsroom, on CANTV. The actual show lasted only 30 minutes, but we kept talking, and a nearly hour-long video got posted to their YouTube page.

This is me being upset about suboptimal bus boarding procedures

Topics included:

Maps from the Washington Post I reference in the interview.

2. The diversifying suburbs

3. The demographic shifts on the Southwest Side, and in Bronzeville

4. The Red Line extension, and Sandy Johnston’s amazing work on the history of the Metra Electric

5. The future of buses, and alternatives to the “Bus Rapid Transit” model

I had a lot of fun with it! Hope you enjoy.
