Stefan Bakker sees a big future for electric vehicles with two wheels. They get less attention than electric cars or electric buses but two-wheeled electric vehicles are increasing faster and are making more of a difference already. This is Reinventing Transport #12.  <a href="https://www.reinventingtransport.org/2019/03/electric-two-wheelers.html">Learn more and read the full show notes here.</a> <a href="https://www.patreon.com/PaulBarter">Support Reinventing Transport on Patreon.</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/paulabarter">Follow Paul Barter on...

Could we end the era of mass car ownership without a huge fight and without draconian policies.

Reinventing Transport

I interviewed Patrick Reynolds and Matt Lowrie, two of the bloggers on the Greater Auckland blog in New Zealand’s largest city. It was a wide ranging conversation which will eventually become two Reinventing Transport episodes and one Reinventing Parking episode.  Auckland is a striking example of a rather car dependent city that has actually been changing some of its key trends and taking some remarkable steps towards becoming a different kind of city in which other transport options are steadily improving.

Reinventing Transport

Parking is the focus of Episode 8 of Reinventing Transport.  Highlights include how most cities plan parking like they plan toilets, and why that is a bad idea.
