PODCAST: Improving infrastructure with bikes
Share Now on:
On today’s show, we’ll talk about news that the number of people signing up for unemployment benefits fell to a low not seen in four decades. Plus, we’ll talk about the merger between two health care giants: Anthem and Cigna. And Portland Oregon’s two defining cultures – tech and bikes – have come together to improve transportation infrastructure using a new app that will anonymously track behaviors, and preferred routes of cyclists, with or without the app. The data from these combined technologies will act as a guide for decision-making when planning bike lanes, routes, and signals.
