Title: Transportation Systems
Author: Borlant-Guertler, Gabe; Tillotson, Brock; Landsem, Paige; Wickman, Lindsay
Abstract: The current US transport system is centered around, and highly reliant of, individuals driving their own car on government constructed roads and highways. This has been the case for the past half century. The current state of the US transportation system is hugely wasteful, in terms of money, time, and energy. Instead of devoting vast amounts of resources to an already wasteful system, some believe we should consider other transport infrastructure whenever possible. By implementing systems such as light rail, heavy rail, buses, and better urban planning, we have the opportunity to reduce waste.
