Sound Transit’s light rail plans turned out to be more challenging than planned. The SkyLink team is advocating to build an urban gondola instead. Martin Westerman will present how urban gondolas are getting more traction around the world as they can provide high frequency, sustainable, and accessible transit more quickly and with less disruption than traditional means.

Martin Pagel grew up in Germany using many forms of public transit.  He is passionate about how public transportation infrastructure can reduce traffic congestion, climate impact, and housing cost by improving mobility. He lived and worked in West Seattle and currently resides in South Seattle.
