New comment waiting approval on World Streets: The Politics of Transport in Cities
This is all brilliant work. And I will use it here in Halifax - we're about to elect a new Mayor and City Council in six weeks.
I'd like to suggest a small but important semantic shift in conversing about our situations and solutions, from using the word "transportation" to using "mobility", going from "Thinking about Equity-Based Transport Systems: …" to "Thinking about Equity-Based Mobility Solutions: …"
"Transportation" is first about the tools, is the semantic cloud of hardware (cars, roads, bridges) and rules of the road, .... .
"Mobility" is the human objective, as is equity. What are we looking to do? Move ourselves, our families, friends, possessions from hither to yon... with human equity, as conveniently, safely, ecologically, & sanely as possible.
