« Transition time: industrial 'fabric' withers | Main | Car Sharing grows as autos decline »



To echo Suzanne, living in Memphis, Tennessee, I don't have a lot of hope for dynamic mass transit improvements being made here anytime soon. Memphis appears to be a true car town. I want to get back the time that I spend paying attention to the road every day. I don't want to worry about car accidents. I don't want to worry about my family having car accidents. I want to fold up a bicycle and step onto a street car or train...

I'm a boomer who bought a mini-van when I still had 3 kids at home. Eleven years later, I'm still driving it. It was great when I and 4 young women went camping for a week in Yellowstone last summer! I won't be turning this thing in for a long time, but when I do, it will be for a small, fuel efficient SUV that still allows me to go camping anytime I want.


You know, I'm not a Boomer, but I'm like Paul on this one. I have a 2001 Stratus that I bought new and it only has about 55K miles on it. I hate driving, but living in northern Michigan, I don't have a lot of hope for mass transit coming here anytime soon. I also don't want a car payment, so I will drive my car until it dies.
