In this episode, host Sarah Bury chats with W. Robert Schultz III from the Active Transportation Alliance, about ways the city of Chicago can reduce traffic congestion in the Loop, what cities worldwide are doing to create multi-modal transportation systems, how to make access to public transit and active transportation options more equitable, and why all of this is so important if Chicago is serious about reducing its greenhouse gas emissions.
