I believe that I've posted , but I think it bears posting again. It's utterly reprehensible that the citizens of the USA have no real choice other than to rely on private vehicle ownership in order to make it to their jobs, or anywhere else. After having spent time in Europe and working with their passenger rail system, which connects virtually every small community with exceedingly low fees for transit, I cannot believe how behind the times the USA really is. All of it because the automotive industry wanted to make sure that they were maximizing profits for the future, and purchased most all of the rail infrastructure at one point in its development, only to destroy all of it to force the citizens of the USA to rely on private vehicle ownership, which costs everyone (and the environment) ridiculously high prices along the way.

If you're interested in the subject at all I highly suggest watching the linked video. Very informative, and not too long of a watch.
