drbubb Posted April 29, 2008 Report Share Posted April 29, 2008 Images of Good public transport - post them here ===================== This thread was triggered by the following comment, first posted on the LOHAS thread. If you have seen public transport that you like (or hate!), please post an image here Very promising, hopefully this will be more common in future. For now it will only be the reasonably wealthy that can afford to live in these specially designed live-in parks I imagine! The problem is realistically people will still want to go to places outside their little area quite often hence rather than just doing away with cars we need an advanced alternative. I think a great alternative can be a mix of something like Bangkok's sky train and Shenzhen's metro. The sky train could be for shorter distances so have more choice of where to go and the metro can be for longer distances. But the sky trains tracks should split out a lot. There is a good aesthetic reason for having a sky train and that is you can look over the city as you are going past and it's highly visible so you can easily see where it's going. Also if the system is good enough we wouldn't even need roads, they could be converted into green park like walkways, like a whole city that is also a park! I think I'm really onto something here, if only I knew how to draw I could do an artistic representation I believe public transport could really flourish as a great solution once people are weened out of their cars. At the moment people choose to use cars because public transport isn't good enough yet the reason it isn't good enough is because there isn't enough demand to expand it- chicken and egg situation.
