If you’ve been to Paris, you know how easy the subway system is to navigate, even if you don’t speak French.
In Mexico City, the second busiest subway system in the world, the experience is similarly easy…pleasant, even.
Travel almost anywhere internationally, and you’ll come back wondering why the U.S. is so behind in public transit.
The key to improving public transportation networks in American cities is frequent, easy-to-use service near housing and jobs. This is especially important in Omaha, where tourism is not our main industry.
Transit is a critical part of modern urban infrastructure. The future of cities depends on us designing our environment around people, not cars.
A streetcar is one step in moving Omaha in the direction of growth, vibrancy, urban density and relevancy on a global scale.
