Our Out to Lunch series is where we enjoy lunch and a business conversation with a thought leader and you are invited to drop in to listen. Today we were Out to Lunch at Jessie's Embers with the Chief Executive Officer of the Des Moines Regional Transit Authority, Elizabeth Presutti. In this first part we talk a bit about who she is and why she is so pumped about the Greater Des Moines Metro. We'll also cover trends in transportation, government subsidies, technology, the many changes going on in the Metro and where, perhaps, we are headed. Self driving vehicles also make an appearance. Join us as we go Out to Lunch with Elizabeth Presutti who heads up the largest public transit system in Iowa. Here is Part One:
In Part Two of our Out to Lunch segment with Elizabeth Presutti, CEO of DART we put on our "future glasses" and look toward what might be coming in the years ahead. From tranportation changes in personal vehicles to public transportation to meeting the needs of various communities and areas of the Metro. What vision goes into creating a public transit system for tomorrow. Listen in to Part Two of our time with Elizabeth as we go Out to Lunch at Jesse's Embers.
