How Cities Can Build Better Urban Transit Systems

Bikesharing has come to Chicago. Shared electric scooters are coming next, on June 15. And the CTA provides millions of rides to Chicagoans each year. Urban transportation options abound, and on this segment, we talk about many of them with Sam Kling, global cities fellow and ACLS/Mellon public fellow at the Chicago Council on Global Affairs, and Sam Schwartz, president and CEO of Sam Schwartz Transportation Consultants, a firm that specializes in transportation planning and engineering. They discuss which cities are getting transportation right and how others can improve, looking at issues like congestion taxes and the role that electric and driverless cars will play in the city landscape moving forward.

Worldview has partnered with the Chicago Council on Global Affairs to bring you voices from the Pritzker Forum on Global Cities, which runs June 5-7, 2019.
