Equity Issues in Transport Policy

As some of you may know, I have just started my PhD and I will be focusing on 'Equity Issues in Transport Policies' with bits of spatial and demographic analysis.

So I was very glad to watch this short talk by Enrique Peñalosa (former mayor of Bogota): 'Why buses represent democracy in action'. You know, it's always good to hear big names saying you're working on important problems.

Love Peñalosa, very interesting talk. It's a shame, though, that part of the impact of the talk is lost due to him not being so fluent in English.

There's another 14-minute talk that I love in which he speaks in Spanish, to Fronteira do Pensamento, have you seen?
