Miriam, an engineer living in Columbus, Ohio, for the past two years, shares her insights on the city’s LinkUS initiative. Having grown up in Alabama and with limited experience riding public transit, her move to Columbus marked a significant shift in her travel habits.

Miriam explains that LinkUS is not just about managing traffic but about creating equitable access to transportation, thereby ensuring that new development benefits all in the community.
