Fixing Pittsburgh

Transportation Key to World-Class Pittsburgh, by Chip Walter

...Public transit is among the essential vitamins and minerals of healthy urban centers. Without an ability to move lots of people of every stripe all around fast and efficiently great cities cannot be great. I’m thinking of Paris, Chicago, London, New York, Boston. They need their trolleys and subways, metros and tubes or they would atrophy, and their citizens would shrivel up too. For people of all kinds to flourish in any city, they have to be mobile. Mobility is power.

I'm a proponent for bringing streetcars back to the city of Pittsburgh. Check out my post on this at "Green is Good."
