Suburbs, where most Americans live, are going to be very difficult to transform into a place that functions without an automobile. Here's hoping a return to city life takes place here.

New public transit has been built in many cities in recent years, but the US still has totally clueless places with very poor public transit and few accommodations for cyclists. Here in Detroit, there are finally plans being drawn up to bring back streetcars, and many new miles of greenways are under construction, which is cause for some hope at last, though what is planned is still less than the minimum that is needed.

I too see many more people out on their bikes! I think the changes that bike-and-transit-activists advocate will be what people are "forced" by circumstance to do.
