About Us

Welcome to the Rail~Volution Podcast. Rail~Volution is a network and an annual conference focused on ways that communities leverage major transit investments (including rail, bus rapid transit, bus, as well as bicycling walking, sharing and emerging options) to connect people with employers and neighborhoods. With the Rail~Volution Podcast, we're delving deeper into aspects of building livable communities, with special focus on equity and community participation.
