Eric Goldwyn Joins Matthew Yglesias on The Weeds

Why Transit Projects Fail

Director of Transportation and Land Use, Eric Goldwyn, was interviewed by Matthew Yglesias on The Weeds’ episode, “Why Transit Projects Fail.” During a discussion on streetcars and ridership, Goldwyn said:

If you can pay to run a subway every five minutes rather than every ten minutes, that’s worthwhile. And the same goes with the bus.
