TRANSPORTATION POLICY FOR BREAKFAST





I had breakfast at the Waldorf-Astoria this morning, an unusual location to find myself at for breakfast.               The occasion was a meeting Transportation Alternatives hosted for Oregon Congressman Earl Blumenauer, a progressive legislator focused on transportation, infrastructure and environmental policy. I was invited in order to share details of ourBirdbath bicycle rickshaw delivery system with the congressman, an invitation too good to pass up. I explained why we began using rickshaws, how it works and the many benefits [operational efficiency, use of clean energy, staff morale and the chance to create goodwill in the streets]. The congressman seemed genuinely intrigued, and after the breakfast, he came up to me and said: "that system of yours is great, but also just sounds fun.

He's right.
