AT MAGGIE’S FARM asks…
Is mass transit really green? Probably not, but could you imagine NYC without trains, buses and subways? It just wouldn’t work.
Can’t disagree with the conclusion, but possibly with the implied reason on offer. I might humbly suspect that the fact above recognized forms more of an indictment of New York and of statist solutions than any endorsement of mass transit.
Perhaps, without the various statist intrusions in the marketplace which the very existence of infrastructure in New York implies, the city might not have grown so large and densely populated. And, perhaps then, mass transit wouldn’t work as well.
