Urbification: Taking the sub out of Calif. suburbs

Walking. Bicycling. Alternatives to Driving Everywhere. Social justice. Alternatives to suburban boredom and waste. And the infrastructure and technology needed to get there.

The Washington Post (via BATN): "A recent Metro survey of 1,000 people who don't ride buses found that 30 percent want better information. 'Even if someone decided they want to take a bus, they can't,' Zimmerman said. 'It's a big secret, unless you're in the know.'" This is a huge requirement for public transit's continued viability. It's time to provide real-time information about the ETA of the next bus or train. I wonder if this imperative will be thwarted by security considerations as the world grows ever more dangerous?
