Hi Chuck, I'm from San Antonio, Texas, and my city is dominated by low density suburban sprawl. Our city's transit system only has a fraction of the funding that other Texas cities have, and the vast majority of the city drives, so many people don't understand how important public transit is for cities. Despite comments in our city's sustainability plan that public transit use and biking must improve, as well as major land use reforms, there has been little to no progress in changing the paradigm of San Antonio's development. My question is what do you the most powerful argument is to convince a car-addicted public to support policies that invest in transit, biking, and walkable design?
