Thanks for considering becoming a patron of Reinventing Transport and Reinventing Parking. The idea is you might sign up as a monthly "patron" of my writing and podcasting work at whatever dollar amount you feel good about.

You will join a community and get some additional value not available elsewhere (see the Tiers).

I hope you will sign up if you support what I am trying to achieve and want me to keep writing, making the podcasts and working on this mission that grips me.

What mission? I want urban transport and parking policy to do more good and less harm. I want to enable low-impact, socially-just mobility. I want urban transport that gives people many mobility choices and which fosters productive, inclusive, walkable, liveable and lovable urban landscapes. I want more focus on the ends of urban transport planning (access, placemaking, space-efficient mobility) and less on the means (moving vehicles).

I work on this in several ways these days: 
  1. As an Adjunct Prof, I teach on urban transport at the LKY School of Public Policy, which is part of the National University of Singapore (I am a recovering academic).
  2. As a freelancer, I train, offer advice, and do research about parking and transport policy. Much of this is in low-income and middle-income countries, especially in Asia. I want to do more of this, including for clients who can't pay much. 
  3. As a blogger and podcaster I share ideas and interviews via Reinventing Transport and Reinventing Parking. Your support can help me keep going and to improve these efforts. 

Tiers
Member
$1 or more per month 2 patrons
All patrons at all tiers can post in the Community (click on the tab at the top) and can comment on posts. As soon as we have more than ten patrons, you will also get the chance to vote in polls on topic ideas and dilemmas (even if I reserve the right to make the final decisions).  
Insider
$5 or more per month 4 patrons
You will get access to special patron-only posts (which will become a regular feature as soon as we have more than a few people in this tier). These posts will generally offer brief additional thoughts, insights, background or speculations related to each article/episode at Reinventing Transport and Reinventing Parking. In addition, this tier (and higher tiers) will get access to resources I create, such as pdf guides or how-to documents.

You will get the lower tier rewards plus a shout out (if you wish) in the sidebar at either or both of the Reinventing Transport and Reinventing Parking websites together with a link to your site (if you have one) or a social media profile (if you wish).

This is the first "pick my brain" tier offering more intensive interactions. You will get the lower tier rewards and will also be eligible for a 40 minute one-on-one discussion with me once every four months. If you (or your organization) are active on parking/transport issues and want ongoing feedback or suggestions relevant to my areas of expertise, this might be the tier for you. 
Sponsor
$50 or more per month 0 of 5 patrons
Patrons at this level are probably organizations and this is akin to sponsorship. In addition to lower tier rewards, including the chance to pick my brain once in four months, you will be acknowledged (if you wish) on either podcast or both. Other sponsorship arrangements are also possible. Ask me!
Goals
$27 of $100 per month
Better than a poke in the eye! This amount per month will just about cover my monthly tangible podcasting and blogging costs. But, more importantly, it would be great encouragement to persist.
