Hey urbanists,
More on congestion pricing this week (see last week’s issue for more), including a proposal to charge Uber and Lyft for their use of public roadways. Charging a small fee for road use does seem to be the best strategy to sort out the congestion plaguing major cities, along with transit investment, of course!
This issue also takes a look at Vancouver’s new housing plan, which despite being ambitious, may not be ambitious enough; and the need to build denser housing around Los Angeles’ new light rail and subway stops. (For more on LA transit, see issue 2.)
Finally, an article I found particularly interesting. Autonomous vehicles seem to be on the horizon, yet so too have flying cars for decades, yet they never arrived. What if the same happens to autonomous vehicles?
Enjoy the issue, and let me know if there’s anything you particularly enjoyed or want to see in future.
