E-M:/ Oakland Press Editorial: Mass Transit in metro Detroit deserves more consideration



Mass transit in metro Detroit deserves more consideration

UPDATED: Thursday, November 29, 2007 (Oakland Press)

Mass transit has been a "four" letter word in the metro Detroit area for the past 50 to 60 years or longer. Considering Detroit was the car manufacturing center of the world, it was understandable.

But as gasoline skyrockets toward $4 a gallon and higher, it might not be such a nasty idea. At least it should be considered.

And throw in the newly reported fact younger adults are desiring more "walkable urban settings," maybe its time has come or is at least near.
