Light Rail. Bus. Train. Monorail. Commuter rail … They’re all different modes of the same thing: Moving people from where they are ... to where they want to go.

We hear from transportation expert Christof Spieler, who emphasizes that transit systems should be designed to serve riders, not the egos of savvy, well-intended urban planners. Plus, Don Fry, president of the Greater Baltimore Committee, about what’s missing in state transportation funding when it comes to the needs of the Baltimore region and highlights a summit that allows citizens to weigh in on the city's transportation challenges.
