Multi-modal with MOTU is a new, occasional Eyes on the Street series where we meet up with planners from the Mayor’s Office of Transportation and Utilities (MOTU) to explore the city’s infrastructure. We’ll talk shop about what MOTU is doing to rethink and improve how people get around the city. We’ll visit recent projects, examine pinch-points, and learn about work ahead.
