In the East Bay, and even more in Contra Costa County, population density is increasing. New residential construction will be mostly infill, near transit hubs. That will make our future more directed toward Public Transportation. Public Transportation's not just for kids, or transit dependent seniors or disabled, but for commuting, shopping, attending meetings and entertainment events.
Use of Public Transportation is great for clean air, and one can read, call or text on a cell phone. If one completely dumps the pump, one can save on insurance, registration, and repairs as well as gas and oil.
