Tuesday’s Trib looks at commuting by car in our region from several points of view:
- Which commute is the worst
- Suburban traffic presents a few twists
- Traffic jams don ‘t stop the data flow
My favorite statistic from this collection of stories is quoted by Rex Burkholder: the average commute in 1990 was ten miles, in 2000 it was seven miles. It seems to me that our effort (i.e., the 2040 plan) to reorganize the region to let people lead their lives in a more compact and sustainable fashion is making some progress.
