The article presents an interview with Robert Cervero, and tries to find his views regarding the issue of transportation. Cervero, a professor of city and regional planning at the University of California, has researched and consulted on transportation issues all over the world. He feels that root of congestion, delays, interminable commutes is jobs-housing imbalance. Cervero feels that there is a change in the priority in the minds of planners. Historically, the highest priority for transportation people was planning for movement, for bringing commuters into the city. Now one is putting neighborhoods and the people who live in them first.
