From Island Press: Darrin Nordahl and Jarrett Walker: Perspectives on Public Tra
Authors Darrin Nordahl and Jarrett Walker discuss public transit from two different ends of the bus route: technical simplicity--and fun. Most everyone agrees that public transit is a powerful tool for addressing a range of urban problems, but while Walker, author of Human Transit, believes that transit can be simple if we focus on the underlying geometry that all transit technologies share, Nordahl, author of My Kind of Transit, argues that when public transit is an enjoyable experience, tourists and commuters alike will willingly hand in their keys.
