On this edition of Independent Sources, hosted by Zyphus Lebrun we ride along with a commuter (or dollar) van driver and we learn about the history of these vehicles that have been viable options to the MTA in communities of color. We see how changing neighborhoods are affecting their future. Then we hear from Chinese immigrants who are fighting City Hall in their effort legalize their “e-bikes” or motorized delivery bikes.
