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 Philadelphia region. "That's another problem of suburban sprawl."



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.
