SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)— With the BART labor dispute making headlines the last few days, we to turn to transportation for this week’s In Depth topic.
San Francisco State University Professor of Geography and Environment, Dr. Jason Henderson, specializes in traffic and public transportation. His research topics include how culture, economics and ideology frame public transit policies in addition to the layout and growth of our cities.
In addition, he’s planning on writing a book on the history of Muni, San Francisco’s municipal railway system.
Some of Henderson’s suggestions include; optimizing the lanes on the Bay Bridge by allowing more express bus service, telecommuting (not necessarily moving, but moving information) bicycling, and ride sharing.
