Public transportation in the United States is so far behind the rest of the world it is ridiculous.
After a recent visit to Germany, I can personally confirm this. From airports, bus systems and trains, Europe is so far ahead of America it’s like a joke.
We did some research into this and the reasons why and it is astonishing the total lack of attention placed on this ever changing area of U.S. infrastructure.
The leading countries in this area are shown below, compliments of Google:
- Hong Kong
The vast amount of planning that is involved in such and endeavor cannot be overstated but it is no wonder that these three countries are at the top of the list.
Each has a reputation for planning, architecture and attention to detail and its citizenry.
In fact, each of those countries, out of need, have developed great engineering and architectural leaders due to over population, rising tides and basic expansion.
Hong Kong is one of the most wonderful cities, and densely populated in the world. Not to mention a financial hot spot.
As we continue to see rising tides and more people in these cities, the viability of public transportation will be of the utmost importance.
The question today is, will the United States spend the money and meet the demand of its population to address the growing concern over a terrible transportation system.
More and more pressure is coming at this time as other countries pull further and further ahead on this front and citizens who have traveled abroad learn just how bad it is in the states.
Stay tuned to our blog to learn more as this topic heats up in the coming months and years.
We look forward to covering this for our readers.
