Thinking About Transportation

Aaron Naparstek of Streetsblog says it best in this interview with PBS's Blueprint America.

The most interesting point comes at the end, when Naparstek notes that livable streets have become perceived as elitist, which is a actually a big problem. In a sense, they are elitist - they're very expensive. You have to have a lot of money to comfortably live in them. I can relate, because I don't have a career and I don't have much income at the moment. There's nothing I could appreciate more than more affordable urban communities; but with such a small supply, of course the prices are going to get bid up by the people who really want to be there.
