BBC: PDX as transportation visionaries

A few weeks ago, the BBC posted a story about Portland called Where the car is not king. The article talks primarily about the role of public transportation in the Portland transportation mix.

Among other things, I found it very interesting that it was written by Sayeeda Warsi, the Vice Chair of Britain's Conservative Party.

The camera crews were also here filming a segment, again hosted by Warsi. It features Sarah Gilbert, a very prolific Portland blogger, as well as shots of Sam Adams explaining the tram, and that most Portlandish event, a bike move.
