Why Am I Not Highlighting _Your_ City Here?
Public transportation has always been important. In today’s world of severe energy cost constraints and global pollution issues it is even more important. If a city wants people to use public transportation then they need to make it useable. A few cities have done so … most just treat busses and trains as the province of the poor and the cripples and keep on driving their BMW’s
This is a sample of Seattle’s excellent on-line system:
The only reason I’m not in “7th heaven” over this tool? It’s been on line for years now … proving that the city can make money with their transit system … yet the number of other cites boasting a comparable public access tool is tiny … sad, actually.
Go to the site to see Seattle’s buses live … explore the power of the tool … and ask yourself why your city isn’t being featured?
And if you do have a system that should be featured here … please contact me and I’ll be happy to write it up.
