Poorly designed transportation systems are the largest cause of poverty, illness, injuries and premature death in today's world.

Half of our energy and many other resources -- clean air, water, land, health, lives, labor, law, military, time, money -- is squandered on traffic congestion. 

This entropy is referred to as "economic growth" and "job creation" by most politicians, bureaucracies, and those who appoint our central planners and public servants. 

But all modes of transportation have an optimal time, place and use.  A balanced and competitive choice of transit modalities can make everyone's lives far healthier, wealthier, happier and more productive.
