E567 – Tony Jordan, Parking Reformer

A comparison between the space needed for a two bedroom apartment, 675 square feet, versus the space needed for two cars, about 650 square feet

Tony Jordan is the co-founder and president of the Parking Reform Network. He’s been an advocate for parking reform for more than a decade. He talks with Joan, Armando, and Aaron about parking, why it’s so bad, and how it could be so much better.
