Subject: RE: [CTPP] USA Today article on drive alone commute
Sometimes what we intend to say looks way different in print (from the same USA Today article). But it brings a paradox to the front about sprawl:
"As development spreads out across the region, the density of travel along a particular route downtown decreases and the opportunities for ride-sharing go down," said Dougherty, who works on transportation issues in the
region. "That's another problem of suburban sprawl." Philadelphia
Since when carpooling became a solution for sprawl? If congestion (density of travel) went down, is that a problem? And if sprawl is responsible for alleviating that problem then that must be a good thing!!
My 2 cents.
