We are joined by the Amateur Planner to talk about transit challenges such as crowded trains and buses, planning and managing bus routes, taxis, parking, fares, and some ways we can do to improve our transit system.

Over Capacity:  This train sat in the Downtown Crossing station for 2.5 minutes due to overcrowding.
