And also, if you have not yet read it, there’s an article in the
_Star_ about increased transit usage that’s worth a peruse —
Nearly 10.7 billion trips in 2013, to be precise — the highest total
since 1956, according to ridership data reported by transit systems
nationally and released Monday by the American Public Transportation
Association. [ … ] “People are making a fundamental shift to having
options” aside from a car in how they get around, said Michael
Melaniphy, president and CEO of the public transportation association.
“This is a long-term trend. This isn’t just a blip.”
