Since all of our transportation problems basically come down to a lack of funding, I think I’ve found yet another solution to our problems. I found an ad on Ebay for this book called ‘Metropolitan Transportation Problems’ by Wilfred Owen from 1968. The ad states that it is a ‘Rare find!’ Well, here in the SRTC offices, we have shelves and shelves of ‘rare finds’ like this. The starting bid on this one is $9.99, so if we got at least $10 for every old study we have sitting around this place, we could finish the NSC tomorrow!
Here’s the whole ad if you’re interested in bidding or just want to know how planners proposed to solve transportation problems back in 1968.
