Parallel Universe – MassBike E.D. and Cohost Galen Mook, a.k.a. Mookmaster Bikes, on the parallels in legislation between California and Massachusetts, plus the impact of “parking guru” Donald Shoup. Then-


Shoup’s On: Laura Friedman’s AB 2097 (now law) will “prohibit a public agency from imposing any minimum automobile parking requirement on any residential, commercial, or other development project…that is located within 12 miles of public transit.” This codifies what High Cost of Free Parking author and world renowned “parking guru” Donald Shoup has been calling for: the beginning of the end of free parking. Donald Shoup talks with Bike Talk cohost and “Dutch Expert” Lindsay Sturman.


Separated at Birth – John Bauters, “America’s Bike Mayor,” recognizing that free parking is a car subsidy, helped end parking minimums in Emeryville, California in 2018. John talks with Seamus Garrity, the Los Angeles Field Representative of California Assemblymember Laura Friedman. Assemblymember Friedman introduced the bill which became the law which ended parking minimums near transit in California. John and Seamus bike to their meetings (John to Air Quality Management District, Seamus to Valley Industry Commerce Association).
