Wish this group wasn't so quiet. I am a strong advocate of alternative transportation, and quite fond of our bus and rail system in the Dallas/FtWorth TX area. Many people use it, but there are many more who should use it. I live around the corner from the rail station and really enjoy using it. It has also had quite an impact on the traffic in my neighborhood--(it has cut way down on the traffic.). Many people no longer use their cars to go to work---just hop on the rail and take off. It is good to see.

That is awesome that so many people are using the public transportation in your area! I live in a car manufacturing city so we get a lot of propaganda that to support the little guy working in the factory, you have to drive cars!!! Yikes! I have never had my license, first cuz I failed my test and was too nervous to go back but now out of concern for the environment. I take the bus most places. Our bus system isn't perfect but it's decent.

My son doesn't drive, either. He uses the bus or rail for everything. We are lucky to have it here. It sure relieves the stress of having to have a car to get to work--and the stress of feeling stuck someplace. It is nice to let someone else sit back and do the driving. I have an old 87 car that is paid for, and just can't imagine these huge car payments people get into. That is another stressor I can do without. Looks like we are the only ones here.
