The Failure of Public Transportation

By Douglas V. Gibbs

Public transportation has its place.  For some people it is a necessary mode of travel.  Not everyone has the ability to afford a vehicle, or the fortune of having a job that is only a bike ride away.  Therefore, the extreme idea of eliminating any public transportation is not being entertained here.  But, as much as we should not totally eliminate public transportation, we also should not push for increasing public transportation with the goal of removing people from their vehicles, or to the point of building super-trains with money we don't have for a population that will likely not ride it.

In California the liberal left Democrats want us out of our cars, and they look to New York's mass transit system as an example.  The reality is, New York City's public transportation is a mess, as is anything, eventually, when the government controls it.
