The public transportation in this country as a whole is sub-par, and even non-existent in some places. We can do much better than that. Look at Europe; they have one of the best public transportation systems in the world! We can definitely learn something from them. We need to have public transportation that covers the entire country and runs on time! The analysis of a study conducted by the Economic Development Research Group indicates that "nearly 24,000 jobs are supported for a year, per billion dollars of spending on public transportation capital." This would also be better for the environment, more energy efficient, and cheaper than everyone driving their own cars. Let's save money, save time, help the environment, and create jobs for a better America! Please share for all to hear!
