It sounds like it's working well.

I admit I am nervous. I know that it can end badly if employers don't provide parking but there's no non-driving way of getting to work, if employees bear the burden of driving AND then paying for a full day's parking AND then walking half an hour from parking spot to workplace...

But on the other hand, if you say "I know driving's the least efficient form of transport but lets encourage employers to subside that specifically through increased convenience and reduced parking costs while not helping significantly with any other method of commuting" then obviously you're diverting resources into maintaining the status quo, not building infrastructure that helps everyone.

Oh, cool! I'd often thought something similar, but i didn't know anywhere had tried implementing it.

It seems good to encourage *small* businesses, not only the next google. (I know many countries do have some grants/loans for small businesses, although I don't know enough about the pros and cons, but the owner's time is probably one of the most important costs for many new businesses.)

I feel that at least SOMETHING is going in the right direction when an article supporting a car park tax is published not in a cycling or environmental publication, but in something called 'Daily business magazine'.

I was really hoping for something more from that funeral director article. “Wearing colourful clothes” and “emotionally connecting” is, apparently, the only difference between men and women in the funeral industry, and I'd have liked to have seen the article spend some more time on that, rather than churning out pointless words that didn't tell us anything.

Same. Maybe there's more in the video that I didn't bother to watch?

I suppose "robust and constructive" is a little better than "a full and frank exchange of views," but this is starting to feel like the months of arguing over the shape of the table at the Paris Peace Talks between the U.S. and North Vietnam.
