The podcast this week is a conversation with Alex Cecchini, an engineer and regular contributor to streets.mn. Alex recently wrote a well-researched post entitled The Case for Quarter Mile Bus Stop Spacing, all about transit design and the tradeoff between frequent stops and bus speeds. We sat down at the Amsterdam Bar in downtown Saint Paul to talk about his transit planning generally, and his research, more specifically. We also blabbed about streetcars and Alex’s background as an amateur urbanist. I hope you enjoy the conversation. (Note: I also wrote about this issue, in part, over at Minnpost.)
