As noted, a number of cities are going back to the future in a way. They are working on plans to reduce the use of automobiles in the city. By reducing cars in cities, the goal is to improve air quality in those cities while encouraging the use of mass transit.
These are laudable goals…and goals that should be continued.
Of course, the caveat here is that we need to make certain that mass transit systems work and are properly funded.
I suggest that less money or no money be spent on expanding roads and more money be spent on mass transit. Thoughts?
