nnekajenkins Posted: 7/27/2010 1:25pm PDT I agree with this wholeheartedly. It does seem like more people are at least looking into what other viable commuting options are available for them to take advantage of. I, for one, am among this group. However, I live in the Washington, D.C.-Baltimore metro area. Commuting options here are not plentiful if you don't live near a Metro station, a bus route, or anywhere near your job. And most of the well-paying white collar jobs are concentrated in just a few areas around DC/MD/VA. However, living options are endless. And there are very few plans currently on the table to improve this situation. Thus, the dilemma continues... Limousine LIberal Posted: 4/2/2010 11:43am PDT very interesting regarding this seeming change in attitudes. only challenge is moving from "would you like.." to "would you pay for..." when it comes to mass transit. these projects are, by definition, massive capital projects. guaranteed usage is never a given. would honestly assume it would help get these projects launched, built and paid for if everyone acknowledged a pretty major "shift" in $ needs to happen (likely driven primarily by material new gas at the pump taxes).
