Green Left Weekly: " ordinary people will never win by simply fighting for a better deal in a car-centred transport system. The solution is a massive expansion of public transport.
There is no reason why every major city in Australia cannot have a comprehensive network of trains, trams and buses, with services running every couple of minutes down major arterial routes.
There is no reason why such a public transport system cannot be free to use.
Such an alternative would reduce pollution and create the possibility for more green spaces in cities. It would increase transport accessibility for young and old, and people with disabilities.
It would eliminate the wastage of social resources that currently goes into having millions of vehicles sitting idle for more than 20 hours a day."
