Bob: I don't think this is outmoded at all. Here on the front range of
Colorado, there has been a need for years to develop a public
transporation system, like light rail. Pollution just "hangs" against the
mountains at times.
It would be great to be in Maryland or DC and take the light rail to the
Smithsonian. I know in Cleveland you can take light rail to the airport.
In good old Nederland, CO, we would take the RTD bus to Boulder (17
miles), switch buses at the Main Terminal and take one to Denver, switch
buses again to catch the bus that takes you to several places like the
zoo, natural history museum. We could take the "train" to Glenwood
Springs. The Scouts may take the "plane" to grandma's for vacation.
And in the mountains, we have to take the car almost everywhere.
Even in a trip to Denver International Airport, you can take the train to
I hope that helps you. And I hope you live somewhere where there is
public transportation. From your post, I might guess you are from a rural
area. You'll have to take the kids to a city if so.
