TrafficJamStockPhoto_500_285_s_c1.jpg

In the next 25 years, a million more people will be living in San Antonio.

If you think the roads are crowded now, it's going to get a lot worse, unless the city of San Antonio doesn't takes action.
But what can we do beyond building more miles of highways?
How do we spur a real mass transit plan?
Can we convince people to live closer to their jobs?
What new technologies are coming online that will change how we do transportation?
The City of San Antonio is starting work on a comprehensive transportation plan.
 
Our guests are:

  • Terry Bellamy - Assistant Director for Transportation and Capital Improvements at the city of San Antonio.
  • Brian Buchanan - the Senior Vice President of Development at VIA Transit.
