The Benefits of Public Transportation
 
 
Posted by Adilson Randi

On today’s episode we sit down with Mike Fargnoli, who was awarded the Joseph J. Lalli Fellowship to study the public transit systems of Pacific Northwest cities like Seattle, WA and Portland, OR in hopes of applying his observations to improve the cities of South Florida. While on his solo trip, he spent two weeks exploring various urban environments via light rail, train, busses, bikes, and scooters. He is currently working on a book to present his research conclusions as well as a video that captures the entirety of the experience and is expecting it all to be presented early 2019.

Inside the Episode: 

  • Mike’s travel history and how each location impacted his career and research projects

  • The benefits of the light rail system in urban areas and the stigma of these systems in American cities

  • Mike’s Public Transit Research with the Joseph J Lalli Fellowship

  • Mike’s experience in the Pacific Northwest and how cities like Seattle and Portland are setting the bar for the light rail system
