Active Transportation Grows in Popularity; Lake View Cemetery Marks 150 Years

Featured Audio

Cleveland this week approved vendors who will soon provide scooters and some electric bicycles for rent throughout the city. They'll join motor vehicles, bicycles and pedestrians.  Advocates of so-called "active transportation" applaud the added choices as more people leave their cars behind. What's the plan now for keeping everyone safe on these shared roadways?  We'll talk with city officials and bike advocates about the benefits and challenges such a transportation mix  brings and a plan of action for inclusion and safety. Later, Lake View Cemetery is the final resting place of some of Cleveland biggest names -- and people you've never heard of.  We'll learn about its history and future as it marks its 150th anniversary.
