14 | Pop Goes The Transport with Andrea San Gil Leon

Apr. 7, 2021

Show notes

They go by many names: ojeks; boda bodas; trikes; tuktuks; matatus; jeepneys — the two-, three-, and four-wheeled vehicles that ferry millions of people across the Global South daily. A decade ago, they were villainized as a scourged to be stamped out; today, they’re being monetized by billion-dollar startups such as Grab and Ojek. But the larger task remains — elevating so-called “informal” transport to a full-partner in urban mobility, and making these modes clean, safe, and sustainable.

Agile City Partners’ Andrea San Gil Leon joins us to discuss her work advising the government of Costa Rica and others on recognizing the power of pop transport.
