The Privatization of Transit


The Privatization of Transit
Private companies are changing the way many of us are getting to work. For years, Google, Facebook and other firms have run shuttle buses that take their employees to and from their campuses. Now startups are getting into the transit business. KQED's Thuy Vu and Scott Shafer look at the benefits and drawbacks of private transit services.

Guests:
• Supervisor Scott Wiener, San Francisco Board of Supervisors
• Clarrissa Cabansagan, community planner at TransForm
• Ali Vahabzadeh, founder and CEO of Chariot
