From Slate: "The Crisis in American Walking: How we got off the pedestrian path." This article describes how Americans walk less than any other nationality in the world (Canadians are probably not far behind), and references the term in the title of this blog post.
From The Atlantic: "Why Young Americans Are Driving So Much Less Than Their Parents." Like me, a lot of younger Americans are realizing that rather than being a ticket to freedom and mobility, cars can be an annoying and expensive burden.
On a local level, I'm attending a workshop this Saturday morning about transit in Calgary and have an extra ticket. Does anyone want to join me? Check out the TransitCamp YYC website!
