MODES IN MANHATTAN

Here are a couple of links from New York City to whet your appetite as to how to balance various modes here in Philadelphia. First, it appears the Big Apple is on its way to a Paris-style bike sharing program. Second,
the Kheel Plan
recommends making mass transit free and charging cars to drive and park in Manhattan. How’s that for some bold plans to mix up mode choice towards something more environmentally sustainable and economically efficient? So much I could say here, but for now I’m just going to comment that I can’t wait for the day I can take my family – by train – to New York, rent some bikes, and have a nice day outside; and I can’t wait for the day other families can do the same thing here in Philly.
