Mass transit is not a luxury

Mass transit is not a luxury: "The irony is that mass transit is better for urbanites in almost every possible way than driving a private automobile. Parking is expensive and consumes huge amounts of space. Auto insurance can be a financial nightmare. Driving is inherently dangerous, especially on the tangled streets of Pittsburgh. Our famously polluted air is now mostly due to car exhaust. Meanwhile, our fanatical need for oil has led to global warfare -- economically and literally.

Mass transit doesn't solve these problems, but it dramatically reduces their impact."
