A generational discussion on the issues revolving around public trasportation

Default-piece-image-1 Public Transportation is a topic that has different perspectives not only from the older, middle and younger generations, but regionally too. This discussion has representation from larger and smaller locations. Kristen Joyner is the middle generation guest and the executive director of South West Transit Association based in Austin, TX. Her perspective in not only from the middle generation, but covers an 8 state region that is both highly populated and sparsely at the same time. Tommy Devore is the older generation guest and at 80, he has semi-retired himself from the Central Arkansas Transit System (CATS). He goes back to 1948 when public transportation was trolleys and buses in Little Rock where riders paid 10 cents for a bus ride anywhere in the city. Adam Wadell is logistics manager for Razorback Transit in Fayetteville, Ar. a college town where he states that the younger generation will ride public transportation because it is easy and accessible. Are you surprised to hear that from the younger generation? We were. This conversation is very timely as we are so concerned with the future of personal and public transportation.
