Last year, I wrote cultural change, corporate or otherwise, must come from the top down.
Now, it looks like that change agent is here. Transportation Sec. Ray LaHood announced last month that bike and pedestrian modes are now equal with motor vehicle as to priorities.
Transportation for America released a study that points to a majority of citizens favoring more transportation options than wider highways to move traffic.
Groundswell is upon us. When the next instance of $4+/gallon happens, we will be thankful this top down cultural shift of priorities has paved the way, so to say, for more options; healthier options.
