  Greg Rucks is a principle in the Rocky Mountain Institute’s Transportation department. He is currently bringing new transportation technology like ride-sharing apps to life in Austin, Texas. Reporter Alycin Bektesh spoke with both experts about what they can bring to the decades-long “Entrance to Aspen” discussion.

Over the years it’s been suggested that 82 become a four lane highway, implement a light rail system, or some begin some sort of travel fee.
