I HAVE SEEN THE FUTURE AND IT WORKS

This article presents the authors impressions of rapid transit systems and commuter railroads in London, Paris, Munich, Modling, Rome, Madrid, and New York, with references to Venice, Perugia, and Pompeii. Most of the systems visited involve conventional technology well utilized rather than any exotic new technology. The author points out that while 21 new rapid transit systems are under construction in the world, only one is in the U.S. (Washington Metro).
