I was a guest on Transit Unplugged, sharing thoughts on the future of transit. Since COVID-19 cut “commuter” rail ridership, and exposed the need to update the service model, it’s time to rebrand it “regional” rail, with all-day service that runs more frequently, and serves the needs of people taking a broader range of trips than the pre-pandemic 9-5 commute. We can also make transit more appealing by applying the principles of convenience, simplicity, and priority that have long influenced policy decisions that promote more driving.
