    Save Manila's (mostly informal) public transport

    Metro Manila depends on informal, lightly-regulated public transport which now faces a catastrophe as a result of this pandemic.
    The Mobility Coalition, an alliance of eight Metro Manila transport advocacy groups, has ideas on what to do. 
    Paul Barter spoke with Robie Siy who is active in the Mobility Coalition and who writes the weekly Mobility Matters column for the Manila Times.

    Heavyweight champions for better buses

    Cities need bus improvement champions - 'heavyweights' even. 
    For Reinventing Transport this time around I discussed bus improvements with public transport planning veteran Colin Brader of ITP.  
    Colin has worked on numerous public transport projects around the world and is one of the authors of the 2019 EBRD report, "Driving change: reforming urban bus services".

    Upward and outward urban growth and why transport folks should care

    Upward and outward urban growth and why transport folks should care

    Where in the world is urban growth mainly outward onto new land? Where is it mostly upward in the form of taller buildings? 
    These questions (and others) are tackled in a unique way by the important World Resources Institute (WRI) working paper, “Upward and Outward Growth: Managing Urban Expansion for More Equitable Cities in the Global South”. 
    I spoke with co-author, Anjali Mahendra about the paper and why transport folks like you and me should pay attention. The result of our conversation is Reinventing Transport episode #17.
