Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I think $4/gallon gasoline is having an effect here in Columbus, ohio.  The bus I take when I work my part time job is full most days.  Buses are breaking down more as they are needing to use the older ones.  

I'll be glad to see the end of SUVs and mini vans because they act like they own the road and they block the view if one is driving a car.

As painful as it is to us here in the US, high prices are the only way that most people will change their habits.

Personally, I enjoy the bus as people seems so nice.  They tend to look out for their co-riders as opposed to drivers who'd just as soon run you down--at least here in Columbus.

I believe that the oil, car and tire companies bought out many street car lines and closed them down.  So, in some ways the car was forced on us.
