This week on the podcast we’re bringing you an episode we recorded at Rail~Volution in Denver in front of a live audience. I was joined by transit advocate and Maryland local Dan Reed to talk about the Purple Line light rail project. After 31 years of discussion the Purple Line is finally under construction and Dan gives us some background on the project including where the project goes, how the public private partnership was put together and how lawsuits just couldn’t keep a good line down. We also learn how Dan used to talk about the project with his friends in high school and how his advocacy has spanned 14 years.
