Eric Eidlin hosts the Talking Headways podcast for a discussion on the way France builds high-speed rails into its cities.
"As France develops its high-speed rail network, the areas around stations are treated not just as transportation initiatives but as city-building projects. The discussion centers on how public agencies plan high-speed rail station areas in France, integration of the stations into districts as a whole, and the importance of a comprehensive vision for integrating transportation and land use in the station district."
