Creating a Better City With Bike Shares and Smart Payments

For this episode we’re focusing again on cities and talking to our friends at MasterCard about how technology companies are looking to urban areas to develop smarter, more seamless environments.

In the first part of this podcast, we tackled how to create the smarter city for tourists and locals alike. In this week’s followup, we discuss smarter and more efficient bike-share programs, how wise cities set aside politics for transportation progress, and the ways contactless payments make everything easier for tourists.

Joining us is Hany Fam, a 20-year veteran of MasterCard and its President of Enterprise Partnerships, and Seth Schultz, Director of Research, Measurement & Planning at C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group. Skift co-founder Jason Clampet is back, too, sitting in for host Hannah Sampson alongside Senior Editor Greg Oates.
