Favor. Compared with other countries, our rail system is obsolete. If we had better mass transit systems people would be more inclined to use them, especially for commuting.

Oppose. Anyone ever look at the fuel economy per passenger kilometre (mile)? Check the numbers - a transit bus is worse than a good car so the fuel consumption would likely increase (the only reason they are cheaper is because your government dollars pay the bills). Because the most fruggal people would switch. And they are not the big consumers of gas. The guy with the Avalanche wouldn't use a transit bus.

I'm all for it-
I shouldn't have to be just the big cities that have subway systems.
Lansing, MI is a few thousand people shy of that "major city" mark at 120,000. It would be nice to see federal funding coming in to help build a subway system.

This becomes an issue for individuals living in a rural area where there already is a problem with public transportation being at least 20 miles away.The only way to get to the bus is now about $30.00, so, I don't think that would work here unfortunately as it is greatly needed.

More money for public transportation is a good idea. Alternatives to automobile use are necessary now more than ever.

More spending on Mass Transit is necessary plus. The more options and means people have, the more likely they will use them.

Definitely favor-if the government drastically improved the public transportation system I think more people would use it thus alleviating excessive traffic issues

Unsure. It all depends on what the public demands the most.
