MASS TRANSPORTATION AND MINORITY TRANSPORTATION

The American Mass Transportation System consists of three principal elements: part of the land area of the nation is dedicated as rights-of-way for the system; there are one hundred million individually operated vehicles; approximately 125 million Americans have varying degrees of competence in negotiating these vehicles on thoroughfares. This entire auto-highway system is financed from a mixture of sources. Every other method of moving people in or between cities is trivial by comparison; every other mode is a minority system. These systems are contemporaries of the automobile, having been invented at approximately the same time, and have been defeated by the auto in direct competition.
