Description

The American Prospect looks at the deteriorating quality of mass transit in America. The reporter points to statistics that show that fewer and fewer people use public transportation. "The falloff in bus ridership, which is much steeper than that in train ridership, is directly linked to declines in bus service," the Prospect reports. The story examines how some cities have revived and expanded their transit systems and ridership despite suburban sprawl. Others have cut off transit service on all but the most cost-effective routes, thus reducing the value of the transit system.
