E167 – Lenny Anderson’s Swan Island



Lenny Anderson is famous for his advocacy for transit connections and active transportation in Portland’s industrial hub.  After working tirelessly on these important issues, he has retired from his responsibilities on Swan Island and now has time to talk to us about the things he cares so deeply about!  We cover the history of Lenny’s employment on Swan Island, TriMet’s routes onto it, Lenny’s involvement in protest over a neighborhood’s destruction, and getting the word out about the options for getting around that are available to everyone.
