WASHINGTON (TheStreet) -- Public transit's a nice option and all, but do buses or trains do more to help a city? It depends on which city you're asking.Even the most stalwart of public transportation supporters concede that public transportation is local transportation, so it's really up to the local community to decide what its wants. What the majority of local communities want -- or at least the members who head to the voting booths -- is more public transportation, period.
|Subways have their merits, but whether they're worth more than buses depends on the cities voting for each kind of system.|
