City needs mass-transit system
The recent article on cars apparently deals with only Seattle proper, ignoring the huge amount of daily auto traffic to and from the surrounding cities. [“Cars losing grip on Seattle,” page one, Sept. 25.]
The terrible traffic conditions in Seattle are not caused by people who live and work here.
Of note, also, were the four cities in the U.S. with a higher percentage than Seattle of people who do not drive solo to work. Each of these cities has a subway system that facilitates transportation within their boundaries and from their suburban communities.
One doesn’t see many bicycle riders in New York or Boston.
