Ways to Go
The road to the future might get bumpy.
What are city streets for? For decades, the urban planners and traffic engineers who designed America’s great cities had one answer to this question: a city street is designed to move cars from one place to another.
"Ways to Go" explores the consequences of this history through three interconnected stories: a community reckons with the legacy of an elevated highway that destroyed an African American neighborhood in Syracuse, New York; an African American activist fights to bring bike equity to Chicago’s South Side; and the controversial ride sharing service Uber battles taxi drivers as it seeks to replace the private car in New York City.
