This week’s episode is a special co-production between I Wonder… and History for the Future, a public affairs show hosted by Kevin Brown on WRCT-Pittsburgh that critically explores history, politics, and society.
With 35% service cuts looming for Port Authority transit, we answer three big questions: What is wrong with public transit in Pittsburgh? Where did public transit even come from in the first place? And what could it look like in the future?
During the program, we speak with “transit guru” Michael Sypolt, Post-Gazette transportation writer Jon Schmitz, Columbia University historian Kenneth Jackson, and Sustainable Pittsburgh executive director Court Gould.
