A noisy, hard-talking show dedicated to Hong Kong transport in all its wonderful forms, from walkability to water taxis, from broken MTR rails to broken environmental promises, an objective platform holding government and politicians accountable for our local transport.
Produced by Ockenden James Edward
Broadcast Language: English
Uber's ridesharing service is essentially illegal in Hong Kong - but Uber's head of regulatory affairs Richard Willder says he wouldn't put it like that... find out more about Uber's plans for Hong Kong, including it's approach to bicycles and UberEats. Will Uber ever make money? Will Uber ever open its data up to researchers? It's all in this week's show! With hosts James Ockenden, editor of Transit Jam, and Alok Jain, Managing Director of Trans-Consult, and featuring Martin Turner, chairman of the Hong Kong Cycling Alliance for the news roundup.
Hong Kong has one of the most three-dimensional pedestrian networks in the world - we chat with Alain Chiaradia, responsible for developing the first 3D Pedestrian Map, which could enable walkers to find routes over bridges and through tunnels and malls. We're also joined by architect Oren Tatcher, who says its time to update our pedestrian design manuals and think more about the pedestrian experience. We discuss the work of John Fruin, an advocate of pedestrian quality in the US in 1971... even that needs an update, our guests say! With hosts James Ockenden, editor of Transit Jam, and Alok Jain, Managing Director of Trans-Consult - and joined by Martin Turner, chairman of the Hong Kong Cycling Alliance for our weekly news roundup.
