I have read forums that talk against US suburbs and often blame the car for urban sprawl. Now, isn't there a really very simple solution to this ? Just create a well thought out public (or even private companies) transportation system throughout all the US suburbs, maybe using various sized buses, some luxury buses, some smaller, some larger according to the nodes and server stations that must be used (to use an analogy with the internet) with differing prices etc. Commute times would decrease and traffic congestion would greatly decrease. Actually using the internet and studying the flow of traffic, maybe signing in to the internet web pages in a given suburb to tell at what time and where you have to go etc. could make the system very efficient. You could also create local subdivisions in suburbs that have smaller stores and some office spaces, some smaller local malls etc. In other occasions you could just keep on using your own car, no problem, big deal. Most debates seem black or white, either suburb sprawl or inner city. Isn't there any middle ground ? Is it some kind of idiotic ideological fight ? I mean there are so many possible intermediate solutions that you can imagine, and yet the debate is either all or nothing. The same could be thought of for any place in the world more or less. Any ideas ?
