Cars are a bad way to move people

Public transport system transformation heads for better quality of life: "To illustrate this point, in order to move 50,000 people per hour, in one direction it would require a road 175m wide flowing with cars. If you used buses instead, you would need a road only 35m wide and a smaller 9m wide track for a metro or rail-based transportation.

So, if one moves away from the thinking of increasing the number of vehicles to move people and start thinking about moving people instead, they would see the true value of building a good public transport network along with all of the other positive benefits to the environment."
