We contract out for those so that's more of that Gig kind of tech economy that we're using and then we use technology also to make sure all that works in concert in the twin cities we have partnerships with five senior living communities so the market that we're building has actually there. It's one that's invisible to a lot of companies out there whether it's Uber lift because they're underserved seniors and people with disabilities want to be out they have this huge pent up demand for getting a ride for having mobility options but the supply of that service is an out there and that's what we're feeling.

They're not always available or reliable. Able K. Cheetah lives a gable pines a senior living community in Saint Paul Minnesota until very recently she mostly got around with a shared public transportation program called Metro Mobility but it wasn't the greatest the night they left until seventy seven. We won't charge you for this right. I said we'RE NOT GONNA get paid if you did charge me and I said I'm never caught using you again. We'll got so where I had to now. She has another option hyphen her residence partnered with a startup called mobility for all its in the business of on-demand rides for people who need extra help getting into a car or other special services. You don't need an APP or even a smartphone. It's designed with seniors and people with disabilities in mind. John is the C._E._O.. Of Mobility for all for our latest installment of evenly distributed exploring digital divide and tech don't shares what's at stake for his users. Seniors and people with disabilities have have gotten used to have accepted that they're just going to be socially isolated and that's not good for their health. It's not good for their wellbeing. That is a huge cost to our society. If you think think of like an Uber or lift or a taxi company those are typically curbed curb service you have to go meet them at the curb whereas our drivers are trained and the expectation is that they will meet our riders within. The senior communities that they live in or after front door and provide that assistance from the threatful all the way into the vehicle and then to their final destination whether it's at Church or at the reception desk for an appointment at doctor's office we have very little capital. We don't have a fleet of cars or minivans or wheelchair accessible vehicles. We contract out for those so that's more of that Gig kind of tech economy that we're using and then we use technology also to make sure all that works in concert in the twin cities we have partnerships with five senior living communities so the market that we're building has actually there. It's one that's invisible to a lot of companies out there whether it's Uber lift because they're underserved seniors and people with disabilities want to be out they have this huge pent up demand for getting a ride for having mobility options but the supply of that service is an out there and that's what we're feeling. We're filling that gap. That's John Donne C._E._O.. Of Mobility for all that's four as in the number four by the way don't says he hopes to expand the company beyond the Minneapolis Saint Paul area in twenty twenty and now for some related links more. Services are popping up to provide ridesharing focused on accessibility tech crunch reports on May mobility which is developing electric vehicles that travel at low speeds and our wheelchair accessible. The design allows wheelchair users to stay in their chairs rolling up rams to enter the vehicles and there's no testing shows they need to make some adjustments like longer rams to make it easier to board still company hopes to make its shuttles operational in Columbus grand rapids and providence soon food.

"To its conclusion in the two o'clock hour to await our Minnesota's cities will conclude as we feature Rochester. So if you're Rochester fan or native or just want to share something about it gives us a call or text in the two o'clock hour, we'll speak with a special guest from Rochester. We'll also talking to cushions and the latest in sports and concussion law with professor Francis. Hsien from the U of M law school a to thirty five, but right now in for the rest of this one o'clock hour, we want to hear from you have a lot of calls coming in you can chat with my legislative panel of Senator France, Melissa Franson and Representative Tony Albright. We have both sides of the aisle here. And we're we were talking pot now, we're gonna talk transportation why? Because Dan wants to he's calling from Hopkins high, Dan, thank you. Thank you. Great show as usual receiving? Thanks, dan. Just have one quick comment. I just to say about marijuana. M MD. As a sophomore. He was in his three roommates. We didn't know prior going smoking weed, and that's all we can talk about. And they did it every day and their study suffered can't believe their health improved. I just think that the launch remember fixations of opening it off to the problem humanity is once it's legal benefits looked at as being morally acceptable. And what do we do with people now who are chased away from areas now supposed to be smoking cigarettes, and and all they can smoke weed him outside. Yeah. I mean, Senator Francis opens up a lot of workplace issues to absolutely not. And I recognize that. And again, you know, Blair's have a keen interest here. And I'm open to to listening to how we make that work. Frankly, right now, we have to deal with it. We have a huge opioid epidemic. So we have a similar. I'm not saying it's the same. But a very similar issue where people are being impaired by by using overdosing on on a really an illegal drugs. So we have to make sure that we get this, right? Good question. If we could apply the same level of intensity of debate and discussion concerning transportation that would be healthy for Minnesota. Because of the doll the cost benefit analysis of transit is horrible. Absolutely horrible. But you don't hear those figures because I think it's a democratic plea for unions, and for large kind of transit, you mean, Dan, I mean, 'cause I think about rail light rail it's twenty seven dollars per ride for a person to take it on the north west light rail to me. You could find somebody you could pay for somebody to run to lease Alexis for the cost to cost the taxpayers to subsidize light rail. It's a boondoggle in my opinion. I spent a fair amount of time in the last two terms talking about light rail versus the flexibility that rebuffs rapid transit of Ford's employees and employers. I would agree that I I think that and it was born out if you look at the Star Tribune today. Metro metro council is actually looking at expanding the bus rapid transit system actually, putting electric buses on the on the highways as well, no mention of light rail. And I think that part of that is to the point that it's it's almost gotten to be too expensive. And I know that shocking to hear when you're going to spend two billion dollars. But I think there is less of an appetite by the federal government going forward to fund some of these larger ticket items when the evidence is becoming a little more clear that people would prefer to take the bus rather than, you know, put down rigid rails that only go through fixed routes at fixed up, and they understand the met council will be coming to you the legislature asking for about seventy five million dollars for new line. Well, just let me let me clarify something. Because a road is also fixed, and it doesn't move. We once you put a row down. You're stuck with that location. Right. So we look at this in committee, and I served on the transportation committee, and I asked to get a tax or fiscal not how much it would cost to build a lane with what south southwest light rail all the way to the end of the south west light rail it would be virtually impossible because it would be extremely expensive much more than the two billion dollars. That people are talking about part of this money is coming for. Federal funding. That's coming. The Minnesota sense to the federal government is only coming back. If it's it goes to transit. So we're recouping some of the money that we're sending to the federal government. So yeah, we looked at what what would be the alternative and roads in this in this particular route would not be a feasible way to do it. So what would you say when they ask you each of you for this seventy five million, we have to look at every single piece of what they need it for a metro ability is a is a huge part of what we need to make sure that people are still relying on. I think that's why light rail is in compliment to it because not everybody in our in our communities drive, or you know, are able to to be able to participate in roadways a lot of I have a lot of constituents were are blind, frankly, and they are really excited that we're actually having another mode. They're excited about the new technology about Dr hands-free and driverless cars because they can benefit from them. The trim ability to Senator Francis conversation about you know, roads are fixed too. But the houses. Is line those fixed roads, and for someone who is in a wheelchair or has an impairment, whether it be blindness or instability on their feet. It's much easier for them to know that that metro mobility bus or car is gonna come right to their doorway rather than have them risk going across the very very busy intersection to get to the bus the train stop that type of thing. So the flexibility from my perspective of ING enhancing, the availability for a metro, mobility or autonomous cars would have you even Uber and left if they were, you know, those type of ideas brought to bear on metro mobility. I think serve the people who use that system much better. All right Garrett is calling from Bloomington high there Garrett. Yes. My question. I have to actually so wanna make marijuana legal one out make illegal to drive without insurance. Murder legal and all this other stuff. Well, I would just jump in. I in my opinion. And this is why I'm looking at the issue. I think there's a public interest in regulating and educating the public on cannabis certainly, you know, there's deaths that occur because we don't fund our roads. And we some of them are unsafe. So we have to look at it that way too. That's why it's imperative that we do fund transportation and met council and in other areas because even met council deals with our water structures. And if we have lead in our water in our pipes, you know, that we essentially I'm hurting our citizens. So all these decisions make a difference in people's lives. And I think we have to be thoughtful of how we make them when we make them. But again, I'm in in in. No hurry for this debate. But it needs to happen. I think the time is now, and it could take a session two sessions. The important point is that we do the best thing we can have responsible framework of regulation will and I wanna add from just this weekend's Wall Street Journal in Colorado. It was reported marijuana business owners are getting prison time. So there are laws. They're even in a state that has recreational marijuana. I am just reading from the Wall Street Journal Denver marijuana business pleaded guilty Friday to drug and racketeering charges will spend a year in prison in what city officials called the first local prosecution of illegal pot enterprise in the US. So just because something's legal isn't a free for all. I mean, if you look at the language of our Bill, which by the way, it's not perfect. And it's a work in progress. We do have language that criminalizes, you know, people who are trying to buy illegally. This will only be allowed for people under twenty one years and older not children. We explicitly make sure that it doesn't go into schools, and then we explicitly keep the air and Clem Clean Air Act in Minnesota freedom to breathe intact. So we're not making this easy for people to use. And certainly there are criminal penalties for those who abuse it. I think one of the things that we are charged with as legislators is to have the conversation. The public is asking for us to undertake a robust conversation, and and ferret out the truth, and the and the myth from the subject, and and no one should be afraid or say, you know, we shouldn't talk about it. Let's just you know, push it off. I think we need to have the debate. I think we have to have the conversation and come what may we will have a much better understanding in terms of what we should do or what we shouldn't do and and the public should endorse that because they're the ones that are asking us to have the conversation. Right. And and this is part of the reason I love having legislators like Representative Tony Albright. And Senator Melissa Franson on is because they can't hear from you directly. Phone lines will continue to be open. Folks, we have to take a quick break. But call us will talk guns taxes opioids when we return six five one or eight six six nine eight nine nine two two six. Next time when we are back on the air on Monday, no doubt. We'll talk about the ramifications of the government shutdown Gandhi. We'll get in that probably driving nuts a little bit about that. But most importantly, we'll have some fun beover rate. Underrated properly rated cover the gamut gets you involved. That's coming up on Monday show here on CO. Weekdays noon to three as talk three. Oh. I'm.

"metro mobility" Discussed on Newsradio 830 WCCO

"Well, well, it's it's definitely something where we have to come up with a way to really involve and engage the community in understanding how deep the the I guess gap could really grow. I mean, that's where we're at. I mean, we've been in a talent shortage for several years now. And this is only adding to that one person Jesse is asking this on the text line. How does metro mobility fair into the topic of transportation, I use them to get to and from work? Right. So metro mobility is is the service. It's the para transit service in the twin cities where folks who who may be differently abled folks who need a little bit of extra assistance can call up the service and habit. Help them out with kind of either their daily chores. Or without or with getting to doctors clinics, and doctor's appointments and things like that. And it's an it is both federally mandated. It is an incredibly important responsibility of metro transit, and it costs money, but it it's an ultimately an investment in the dignity of all of our neighbors in metro transit or in in metric using metro mobility. And the thing is that kind of service is actually one of the largest aspects of transit service around the around the state in Saint Cloud. They have two hundred thousand people use the regular transit system. But then they have another hundred and fifty thousand riders regularly on their on their para transit system right there. Para transit system has almost as many writers as their regular transit system. It's a really huge part of helping people get around. Yeah. End. It's in it is great. And you see those those buses all over and just makes me happy. Also to know that you know, we as a community do have some kind of priority in helping all kinds of people. Find work have something that is giving them a perp. Purpose, right. We need a purpose. And is a good time to mention in. And as the show goes on today will continue to honor the life of George Hw Bush, President Bush did sign into law the Americans with Disabilities Act. So, you know, some of those things have to happen at the federal level to then empower local communities to do something like the metro mobility. All right, Sean broom, I'm sure this isn't the last we'll be hearing from you. He is director of public policy for Minneapolis regional chamber of commerce. Is there an easy way? People can get in touch with you. Or if they want to weigh in on this topic to help with your efforts. Ultimately can track us Minneapolis chamber on Twitter. We're on, you know, come check out the website. We've got great public affairs programming every single month where we talked to to grass tops to leaders into decision makers about topics like transit like housing land use on how it impacts our our businesses. All right. We will say goodbye to Sean now. But when we come back Marriott was hit with a huge data breach. What does it mean for you? You will get into it. And were you a victim? I want to hear from you six five one nine eight nine nine two two six..

"Thanks for spending part of your Sunday was me while we're rocking and rolling in quite a party here in the studio. All of my guests have been in studio today, including my next one. You probably heard that southwest light rail broke ground on Friday that was a saga that lasted almost twenty years to get to that date. But what about the rest of the state to lose Rochester? All the parts in between when it comes to public transit. That's exactly what we will talk about with Sean broom, he's director of public policy for the Minneapolis regional chamber of commerce. Welcome to the station. Sean good afternoon and thanks for having me. All right. This is a topic. That's not necessarily sexy. But it's so vital. Right. Absolutely. You know, it's hard to get super animated about transit in places outside of of the metro area. But it is incredibly important is the lifeblood for a lot of these small towns. All right. So what is the issue? I know that there is. Is you know, you're you always have different plans. There's a greater Minnesota transit investment plan. What are some of the basics of that? And what should the citizens of Minnesota really be looking for? Well, ultimately, the greater Minnesota transit investment plan is talking about the money that needs to be put into to support an invest in transit systems in small towns in regional centers around the state of Minnesota. It's most of the time when people think about transit, they think about buses or they think about south west light rail, and you were very very polite and saying that it was only a twenty year history. Their articles from thirty years old years ago in the strip talking about the same arguments. People still have today about southwest, but there are networks others, the smart transportation network, which was is a small transportation network down in the Otani area. And it's got hundreds of thousands of riders every single year. It brings senior citizens to medical appointments, it brings folks to their jobs at Hormel around other packing plants our industry, and we don't ever think about that. But these regional transit systems from Worthington TOA to bemidji and Brainerd all have a really integral part to play in the future success of those areas. Right. They're seeing a lot of folks. Who are leaving to go to the twin cities. They're seeing folks who are unable to to age in place, and by investing in transit, you're giving people options to get to work or go downtown and get to you know, a shopper whatnot. You're also given senior citizens a chance to continue to stay in the communities. They've given so much to all right. So when we're talking about Minnesota transit and transportation, some stats about the background fill in the blanks on this. There are sixty one systems across the state five in the metro which are metro transit metro mobility transit link metro van pool suburban transit association. How are you defining this transit system? Sean, right. We'll so those that suburban transit association also includes like the Minnesota valley transit association, Plymouth, Metrolink the maple grove. Transit authority. And those are those are the other kinds of suburban commuter buses will often see in downtown, Minneapolis. We're bringing bringing folks into downtown to to get two jobs or get to the U. And then around the rest of the state of Minnesota. They're, you know, sometimes individual cities that have a transit system, Saint Cloud, Rochester, Duluth all have their own local transit systems often times with a couple hundred thousand riders each, but then there will be places like the smart systems, the one that kind of sticks to the top of my head of theirs. The trailblazers system, which is kind of the far west ex-serb in counties, and that's another one with three hundred thousand riders of getting folks to doctors appointments and getting them to jobs. All right. And we're talking though, a lot of these transit systems are buses. Yep. Okay. So when we go to these other parts of the state, I mean, can you envision more of the rail situation happening? Well, so one of the places where I think we should have a broader discussion. About rail is in connecting the twin cities to those regional centers in connecting Minneapolis and Saint Paul to Duluth to Rochester to Saint Cloud to me to man Kato because the stronger we make those connections, the stronger, the overall state economy's going to be one of the things that kind of inspired some thinking about this here at the Minneapolis chamber was there was an article about how in Rochester there bunches of folks who were getting hired at the destination medical center, but then their spouses are having a hard time finding employment that matches their skill set. And if you had an easier way for kind of some high speed, commuting between the twin cities and Rochester that that problem could be eased by increasing the area that they could go work. I'm talking with Sean broom, he's director of public policy at the Minneapolis regional chamber of commerce. If you have any questions for him, give us a call six five one nine eight nine nine two to six or eight six six nine eight nine nine two to six and what are your thoughts? I mean, I have covered light rail that part of the transportation on this show for for years now. And there are always people, Sean who say, you know, what all we need our buses were too much of a car driven society. It it's just not gonna fly or it's not really connecting to where it needs to go. What are your thoughts and your counter to that? Buses have to be part of the solution with it and rail also has to be part of the options that we we offer consumers we offer people who are going to make the choice to live in the twin cities because there are plenty of places, you know, it'd recently come up Amazon's gonna move part of its new headquarters to northern Virginia. And there you have commuter rail that extends from the Washington DC area all the way out to West Virginia, a, you know, almost one hundred miles, and so when we think about what are regional area is we need, you know. I mean, there are plenty of folks who commute in basically from Duluth Saint Cloud as it is now and simply expanding the opportunities for them to get jobs that they may be commuting to already is something that that millennials are demanding it something that they expect from from where they choose to live. And it's something that also is kind of looking towards limiting congestion on the roads. Right. We went to a business this week and a guy. I had talked about how he had commuted for over a decade from Saint Cloud to Bloomington Renzo every single day. He put two hours every way go in to and from work on this. And if you would have had a couple of other transit options to him he might not have had to have committed four hours a day into sitting in a car. Why? Right. I mean, that's crazy. And then even if you are in a bus or on a rail of some kind, and even if it is an extended duration, you can maybe do other work or read FaceTime with your kids, or whatever it is. So a lot of different things. And it's interesting you mention different parts of the country because whenever I go out east. I've got some friends in New York, go to New York for business, and sometimes, you know, depending on the airport you land at you're not right easily connected to the to the subway will they have the community lies. I mean, they always have a public option. Whether it's a combo of the subway, and then a commuter rail train or a bus in this or something in that in. And that is just not where. Seems like our brains are in Minnesota. We're a little bit behind in kind of keeping up with some of our peers on that we need to find new ways and new investment opportunities in the twin cities to commit to south west light rail, two baht note to the other to the other choices. But then things like extending the northstar all the way to Saint Cloud. That is something that would allow us to kind of hook up a lot more closely with Saint Cloud. It would make suburbs of the twin cities suburbs of Saint Cloud as well. And that's a way where we can kind of point to those situations on the east coast. I went to high school in central New Jersey and every morning there were eight commuter trains that left from from long branch, New Jersey to go to to New York City, and it was an hour plus train ride. But it was something that was filled every single morning because the the economic opportunity and capacity was there, and if we want to build that in the twin cities we're gonna have to invest in all of these options. All right, this listeners texting this. We are competing with other regions. Younger workers want trains and transit. Absolutely. No, right. And that is part of your point. We're losing the future workforce. We're losing the future workforce to Denver to Portland to Boston to places where people don't have to have multiple cars where they can have a car lighter a car free lifestyle where they can live in transit oriented development, which is kind of a high falutin way to say, you know, live near a bus stop near a train station in have stuff near that. That transit that they need restaurants and grocery stores, and if we don't give people those options, we will lose out on them. We will lose out on the workforce of the future who are not bound to live in Minnesota who are not bound to live in the twin cities. We are talking with Sean broom, he's director of public policy for the Minneapolis regional chamber of commerce. We're talking statewide transportation. Folks. What are your thoughts about this six five one nine eight nine nine two to six or eight six six nine eight nine nine two two six are you willing to give up your car? Are you just so married to your car that maybe you're? Part of the problem when it comes to lawmakers thinking, hey, our state isn't ready for this? I want to hear from you. Or are you a success story? You tried an experiment you you decided to do rail or buses, and and this is what it did for your life. I'd love to hear from you six five one nine eight nine nine two two six great, Sean, I can tell as you respond to some of my questions that you're very passionate about this topic. And you probably know more about it than most of us ever will in a lifetime. What are some of the fundamental things people if individual people can do to maybe open up their minds to what a big problem? This is right now. Wow. There's a whole lot. I mean, one of the things to start with is that you simply can't build your way out of congestion as we look at the twin cities as we look at corridors around the twin cities, you cannot add lane miles and expect that it's just going to become a free flowing highway. You cannot build your way out of congestion. And as we look to continue to grow in the future that congestion will only get worse, unless we give people other means to to get to work or get to their their travels or get to where they end up needing to travel to something that blew me away as we we think about this. We've underfunded both our road system in our transit system for generations. And there will come point where we have to make really serious decisions about that. Minnesota has the fourth largest road network in the country. And right now our gas tax has the same purchasing power as it did in the late nineteen twenties. Right. When we basically initiated the gas tax in the first place we. We don't invest enough in the roads that we need to keep commerce moving. And then because of that we see the congestion that makes it harder for people to commute. That means that people are sinking hours into spending time in the row are on the road when they should be either at work or with their families..
