Aspen wants to cut traffic without adding more lanes or changing the s-curves. In an experiment called "Shift," which is slated for next summer, the city will test out a variety of programs aimed at giving people options to get out of the car as they commute into town.

Elizabeth Stewart-Severy has been following the experiment's progress and talked with host Zoe Rom about how city staff is working to find the right mix of options for the commuting public.
