In this extended episode, John has a detailed conversation with Professor Bruce Appleyard author of Livable Streets 2.0, a fabulous tribute to his late father, Donald Appleyard, and his classic urbanism text Livable Streets.
A livable street is like a good friend that gives you energy. In contrast, an unlivable street drains you.
In this episode, John and Bruce discuss in detail many aspects of the book and his recent contribution on Designing for Active Travel he made to the International Encyclopedia of Transportation (TRNS).
