William Lind: A Conservative Voice For Public Transportation

Posted by Infra on Thursday, December 3rd, 2009

“At the 2009 Rail-Volution conference in Boston, Streetfilms was able to grab a few moments with the political conservative, transit advocate, William Lind.  Lind aims to provide “liberal transit advocates” the language to build bipartisan support for public transportation (okay, just rail) in terms that conservatives can relate to. Some of Lind’s arguments don’t reflect our views here at Streetfilms, especially his disdain for buses (which we don’t cover in this video), but he makes a thought-provoking case for transit investment.

Lind argues that transit enhances national security, promotes economic development, helps maintain conservatives values, builds community, and gets people to jobs. Streetsblog readers won’t want to miss his critique of highway spending as a massive government intervention.”
