Mass Transit

Mature mass transit has no problem competing with cars. It is faster and much cheaper. However, a fledgling system has problems competing. There are not enough riders to justify frequent cars and car to destinations. The city planners have to resist the temptation to keep building more roads. They also have to be prepared to heavily subsidise mass transit, both with low fares and frequent cars to jump start it.
