Whether we're going to work, running errands, or meeting up with friends, getting from place to place is a huge part of our daily lives, but we all do it slightly differently.
A new podcast series called Here to There explores what it's like to commute in the Twin Cities, and what it could be in the future.
Each episode, you "take a trip" with a different Minnesotan. But the destination isn't a place, it's a goal for the metro's mobility system, like accessibility, affordability, sustainability, or equity.
There are 10, 30-40 minute episodes or "trips." Each one starts off by following a Minnesotan as they go about their daily commute, whether it's by car, bike, walking, or public transportation. It's a peek into the ways that mobility options impact peoples' finances, health, and quality of life.
The episode is capped off with a sit-down discussion with a local leader from the field of policy, technology, advocacy or thought. The expert talks about emerging challenges and opportunities in transportation.
