Author Sam Schwartz describes how this change in car usage ultimately benefits cities, making them healthier, and increasing property values, in a book that has been praised for its timeliness and insight.

Following his presentation on Street Smart, Sam Schwartz will be joined by Alex Garvin for a conversation about transportation and urbanism.
