Interview: Gabe Klein

Emily Badger of The Atlantic Cities rolls out a good conversation with our transit chief, Gabe Klein. She asks, what's a visionary like Klein to do with the privatized parking meter fiasco (for which Klein expresses clear disdain)? How will such an obstacle influence the transformation of public space? After all, the gig is as much about public space as transportation, says Klein. And she asks about his term in D.C., entrepreneurial background, and plans for the future. He wants this to be his last DOT job, but you can tell he wants to go out with a bang. Bonus: Klein takes a detour in answering a question about opposition to walkability/livability projects, unleashing some impassioned Canada-boosterism. [The Atlantic Cities]
