MASS TRANSIT: WHAT ARE THE LIMITS?

The reconfiguration of urban design, the reduction of pollution, and the democratization of the transportation system can be achieved by mass transit. However, there are other urban problems that would remain largely unaffected. These include economic ills, the nature of urban politics, fiscal problems, urban crime, and urban education. The means of transportation--autos, buses, trains--have no value in themselves. Their value is merely functional. The same can be said of the city. The city and the transportation network in combination can be considered as a communications system.
