I’ve been looking to getting this blog started for awhile now. My goal is to create a nice mixture between advocacy, information, my jumbled thoughts and more, mainly focused on transportation, the environment and the politics that surround it.
I’ve lived in a range of places, and been fortunate enough to travel to many more. As such, I’ve been exposed to a great deal of ideas in what should constitute good transportation. I hope to bring my experience in living along BRT in Curitiba, riding the rubber-tired subway in Mexico City, seeing the oldest subway system in the hemisphere every day in Boston and biking along farms in Fresno to the internets. Maybe I’ll even find a reader or two.
As I’m currently in Fresno (well, Clovis), I suspect many of my posts will focus on that. Fortunately for me, Fresno has begun planning for an exciting future with transportation concerning more than just highways. From the developing bikeways, to the upcoming high speed rail, to setting the foundation for BRT and a streetcar, there should be enough to talk about.
Oh, and pictures. I like pictures. There will be many of those too.
