Podcast: Smartest Airport in the World: An Interview with PIT's Sam Stedford

Metro21's Executive Director Karen Lightman sits down with PIT Airport's Sam Stedford in the latest episode of the Metro21 podcast. Sam is the Senior Analyst for Strategic Initiatives at the Allegheny County Airport. In 2018, CMU and the Authority signed a Memo of Understanding that established Sam as a liaison between the institutions. 

Sam dives deep with us into a discussion of aligning community needs with technology to benefit everyone who interacts with the PIT Airport. She also looks to the past and present to discuss future initiatives for the airport, including expanding community access and reducing passenger wait times.
