More choices for better transportation

NYT Randy Cohen: Don’t sell Hummer, kill it

A delicious commentary generally favoring high speed rail and sensible transportation  is set forward in today’s New York Times. It is a comprehensive argument and you must read it all.

For the foreseeable future, the private car will necessarily play a key role in how we get around, but we can wean ourselves from utter dependence. We can build high-speed rail for city-to-city trips of under 500 miles, reducing highway traffic and unclogging our airports, an idea favored by the White House. Within our cities, we can develop eco-friendly public transportation including bus rapid transit, a success around the world.
