Public transportation might be good and has a lot of benefit than cars, but look at COVID-19, you can't even go anywhere. In cars you can go anywhere. And please don't say "now look how many cases you have in the US?". What did you expect? There are a lot of people here in US; specially in main city such as, NY, Detroit, LA, SF, etc.

Is there really anything special in the US or is it an overestimated country that spends all of it's tax money to fund the army instead of upgrading their country?

I wish we could build a public transport system but American cities are so spread out. There are miles upon miles of suburbs out from downtown and I live in a small city (100,000) with absolutely no public transport. I don’t understand why we would need a public transport system considering the city is set up to be car friendly and everyone owns a car. Why would we need a light rail or bus going from the suburbs if everyone just drives anyway? Seems like a waste...

Unregulated capitalism, like unregulated socialism, isn't a good thing. We need a blend of both. In the US, if it isn't profitable for the stockholders, it doesn't happen. Seldom is anything done for the public good. Public transportation would benefit the public as a whole, but unlike the US highway system that has been built almost entirely from taxation, public transport has largely been left to sink or swim. Most of the time it has sunk because it hasn't been profitable.

@Alpha Beta Actually no, healthcare is practicly free. Sure taxpayers pay for it. But in total it was estimated that the average citizen in the UK only pays about 200£ per year. And in exchange they get free, quality healthcare, for them and the entirety of the country. Second, yes, the US won the cold war, but they definitely didn't win the space race. As I said in my previous comment, America was only first to do one thing, land a man on the moon, which had very little impact for science. On the other hand the Soviets managed to do basically everything else before the US, but the difference is that what the Soviets did actually contributed to science, and the research of magnetic fields. It's clear when you look at the history of NASA. After the moon landing NASA was broke, completely broke, which is why they were practically forced to work on the ISS along with the Soviets. Lastly, what does any of this have to do with public transportation and "freeeeeeedom"? Being able to go to work everyday with public transportation is a freedom that many Americans can't enjoy.

Stef Myt Well sorry to burst your bubble, America won the cold war which was the reason we went to space. And with us defeating the Soviets in defeating communism we are a free country in which we have constitutional rights and freedom for our actions and capabilities. Going back to the space side having NASA land on the moon and having now with SpaceX more advancements in aerospace we can defend our world better and record changes in electro magnetic fields around the earth and other celestial bodies in the universe, these are all given to us by putting retroreflectors in data collective devices on the moon by who??? The Americans! With the Soviets now being a Third World country because they drove themselves into the ground, we are the strongest nation in the world and are able to keep our citizens safe from danger of other countries like the late Soviet Union. With healthcare, free healthcare, like you’ve stated before is not fully free. Who do you think pays for it, newsflash it’s the taxpayers. With free healthcare it means less one-on-one time for doctors and patients less patient confidentiality so the state or country could regulate healthcare in certain areas, and overall worse Quality. For bills in this country you just got a pay them that sucks for you if you don’t like it move, and if you can’t pay them get a job sell your home or sell other things you have. Before i end I want to defend space a little bit more, none of those things mattered in the end for the Soviet union other than the first man in space, with America defeating the Soviet union we’ve never looked back on the moonwalk and have never saw a better advancement in human history since then. It Will help mankind more than any of those achievements that the Soviets have put in place. And with this last thing I want to say, living in America is not a right it is not something that people can do for free it is a privilege to live here, you have to work to keep this country great like we have shown in space exploration.

@Alpha Beta In what way is walking on the moon the greatest achievenement? If you're talking about space exploration, sorry to burst your bubble but the Soviets were way more advanced than the US. First manmade object in outter space? The soviet union launched it. FIrst living being in outer space? The soviet union launched it.. First living being in outter space that returned to earth? The soviet union launched it. First human in outter space? The soviet union launched it. First human who succesfully returned to earth from space? The soviet union launched it. First object to orbit around the moon? The soviet union launched it. First human to orbit the moon? The soviet union launched it. The only thing space related where the US was first, was walking on the moon. But sure, let's say that the US was the best in space exploration, how does that help american people? Does that pay your bills? Your medical bills? Which are free in Europe.

Zoning is an urban disaster, in France we use the concept of "mixité fonctionnelle" (functionnal mixity), basically when a new building block is planned, it must integrate appartments, often small commerce (bakeries, tobacco stores, pharmacy,...) on the ground floor, business offices sometimes, student dorms, etc. which means, as you build the blocks you create streets where something happens.

Right now I could go from my country's capital to the second largest city by high-speed train for $20 in just a few hours. And don't say that it's not free because it's on a fixed schedule, in most places buses come ever 3 to 5 minutes and trains/subways every 1 to 2 minutes. If that's too much for you, too bad.

One HUGE difference you missed between Europe and the US is the crime rate. Every time you use public transportation in the US, you face the risk of being mugged, raped, or murdered. It might be a small risk, and different in each city, but it's there. Europe has twice as many people and a quarter of the crime. It's safer to use public transportation in Europe, so even if we had better systems here, I doubt it would ever get as many riders as the ones in Europe does. For example: I rode the bus in Bratislava one night at about 2:00 AM. I don't speak a lick of Slovak, and I was hammered from spending like 6 hours barhopping around the old town area, so I would have been an easy target for criminals. I sat at the bus stop for like 20 minutes and spent about 20 minutes riding the bus with a handful of locals and another tourist couple (they were speaking Italian or Spanish), and not once did I feel unsafe.

There are two greyhound buses every day between Indianapolis and Anderson, and I'm pretty sure there are some commuter buses too. Of course that's a lot less than in other places, but you can still get there without a car. I find it annoying when people discredit the existence of buses, as he said, those streetcar routes didn't just disappear, they were replaced with bus routes which by and large are still there. Pretty much any medium sized city in the US ( including Anderson indiana) have a local bus network and outside connections that make it possible to live without a car. Sure our public transportation is slower and less practical than Europe's, but in most places, it's far from impossible to live without a car.

We should ban public transportation because it is dangerous due to people spreading Covid 19 and other diseases. We should just not waste money on these germ factories.

It's a good thing that we live in a free society where anybody can make it if they work hard enough. It's not my fault that some people are poor so my tax dollars should not be used to subsidize their living standards. If somebody wants transportation they should figure out how to work harder or smarter to make the money needed to have what they want. FYI My wife is disabled with Multiple Sclerosis which is a very expensive disease but we've figured out how to make enough money to have a reasonable living. There are things people can do to make money when they are disabled. If somebody is poor they should take some personal responsibility for their circumstances instead of requiring handouts from the government.

@Digital Evidence Expert Still, low-income people do not have the income to buy smart phones and cellular service that are required to access ride share services or to pay for ride share services. Also, some cities ban ride share services altogether because of lobbying from taxi companies. Furthermore, _city streets and freeways cannot handle additional private vehicular traffic_ . Fifty cars take up more street space than one bus with 50 passengers. Five thousand cars take up more street space than 100 buses with 50 passengers each.
