Vancouver's Manager of Transportation Planning, Dale Bracewell is our guest for Ep. No. 103

Road space reallocation, All Ages & Abilities active mobility network, e-cargo-bike freight/goods cycle-logistics, school streets, slow streets, and pricing for motor vehicle access in the downtown core - these are all critical factors connected to Vancouver's newly adopted Climate Emergency Action Plan that John and Dale discuss in this episode.

Their goal is to have 2/3 of trips by 2030 to be walking, biking, and transit. Land use is crucial, creating the walkable "15-minute city".
