Podcast with Vernon Everitt
Vernon Everitt, Transport Commissioner for Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM), sat down with Transit Unplugged host Paul Comfort to discuss everything from transport to guitars. As an advocate for public transport, Vernon said, “transport is an enabler of so much else – of economic growth, of creating jobs and housing and social inclusion.”
