The future of transportation in Minneapolis (video)

Tomorrow, Minneapolis will elect a new mayor. Which candidates have solid plans to let all Minneapolitans move about the city safely and freely? We tried to get to the bottom of it at our mayoral forum on transportation, which we co-sponsored. Moderator Paula Pentel asked the candidates (Dan Cohen, Bob Fine, Betsy Hodges, Cam Winton, and Stephanie Woodruff) this question about cycling at 7:00:

"The City Council recently passed a climate action plan calling for 30 new miles of protected bikeways by 2020. Do you agree with this goal? How would you work with the county to ensure that we build bike infrastructure that works for everyone?" 

The other questions covered rail projects (16:35), pedestrian and equity concerns (27:06), parking policy (37:32), potholes (48:35), and candidate-specific issues (58:26).

Thanks to Streets.MN, UrbanMSP, ITSO, MUSSA, and the Alliance for Metropolitan Stability for co-sponsoring the forum. Enjoy the full video, and you can check out our candidate questionnaires for more information.
