Enrique Peñalosa: Why buses represent democracy in action

“An advanced city is not one where even the poor use cars, but rather one where even the rich use public transport.”

This is a beautiful and inspiring talk by a mayor who showed the leadership, vision and guts to do what was right in the face of opposition, and has been vindicated through tangible improvements in quality of life. Watch and learn, Cities of Suburban Sprawl!
