DETROIT: A CASE STUDY OF OUR TRANSIT PROBLEMS

Posted by Steve Anderson on Wednesday, December 30th, 2009

Detroit is a “a grim symbol of America’s diminished status in the world,” according to PBS’ Blueprint America.  The former car capital exemplifies our country’s need for more efficient, sustainable and reliable transportation paradigms.  PBS will be broadcasting a 90-minute documentary in February that looks at the history of Detroit’s transportation identity, and the state of transportation in America, by setting Detroit’s “blighted urban landscape” against modern examples of success.  Watch a preview of Beyond the Motor City below, or visit this PBS.org page to read more.
