Bus = Democracy???

I stumbled across this post from one of my favorite blogs, Invisible Children, and thought it’s a perfect fit with Portland’s bus sustainability innovation.

Former mayor of  Bogotá, Colombia, Enrique Peñalosa, gave a TED talk about how sustainability and mobility are linked:

Sound like our fair city? The revolution is working…

Watch on to see how he worked to change the transportation dynamic in the nation’s capital.
