Lucian Go
As a native of southern California, transportation alternatives are a luxury that I am still enthusiastic about after several years in the Bay Area. Having not had this mobility while dependent on a car, I came to appreciate the freedom that good transit options provide while attending the University of California, Berkeley. Trains, buses, and bikes don’t just get us from point A to point B — they lay the foundation for healthier communities and success in reaching our environmental goals. I work with the Transportation team at NRDC, and I hope to use this blog to highlight some of the issues that our program works on, particularly with regards to transportation, technology and policy.
