Big news for the Region! Translink has just unveiled Transport 2050: its blueprint for the next 30 years of regional mobility. Gordon talks to Translink Manager of Policy Development Eve Hou about the evolution of this important document, and what Translink sees coming down the long-range pipes. Will we have a future of integrated mobility: transit pass, car-share, and share-bike, all in one handy package? Translink calls it “mobility as a service”. The acronym is ACES — automated, connected, electric, and shared — and it’s all part of the big picture.
Plus: working from home in the post-pandemic world, inter-regional lines, confronting the climate emergency, fighting the war on cars, and raising a new generation of transit nerds. Listen in as Translink spills the beans.
