I decided to start a thread on public transportation because other threads kind of got out of hand.
Anyways, the United States is one of the few developed nations with a poor public transportation system. Almost everything is privatized through bus, train or airplane services. What is your opinion on this? Do you think that the US should invest in public transportation for, say, bullet trains across the United States?
I for one would think that high speed trains would help businesses expand greatly as well as reduce shipping costs for smaller items at least. However, implementation is difficult, so I think it would be hard to pull off without some serious pulling together.
