THE TRANSPORTATION DILEMMA

WHO PAYS FOR URBAN TRANSPORTATION?

This question has been around since cities were "invented" and people had to move a-bout in them, away from, and back to them.

In the "old days," trolleys moved numbers of people. They helped form the cities themselves as distances from the center of the city increased. And then, cars were mass-produced, and their increased use again changed the form cities would take as well as the transportation habits of those in the city and on its perimeter.

With the American public becoming captivated, captured and encapsulated by THECAR, the cycle of cars-to-roads-to-cars has become seemingly endless. In Honolulu, we find ourselves wondering whether, and how, THEBUS cam be made to become part of our lives. Can it meet our transportation needs -- moving people and goods, or is it something only for "others?" And who will pay for it -- the USERS or ALL OF US?

On page 7 you will find data that show the costs involved in providing Honolulu's public transportation system. Bring this data sheet with you to the March luncheon meeting. Dig out League's position on transportation and bring it, too. Our speaker will tell us more about THEBUS and other aspects of mass transportation.
