Next time I’m in Portugal, I’m going to ride the little yellow tram. What a stylish way to get around! I don’t even care where I’m going. 😆
Interesting history of mass transit in America. For those of us frustrated by being forced to drive a car everywhere (aka being stuck in traffic without an alternative way to get around) 🙄, this article provides some explanation, or at least context.
American suburbs are unique in being almost entirely auto-oriented, relating on those dumb park-and-rides for mass transit. Other countries that have extended mass transit into the suburbs themselves have had much more success. As the article says, “good service can make transit successful even in low-density suburbs.”
