The fall campaign has brought a welcome discussion of the state’s transportation woes, especially getting mass transit back into a state of good repair. But gubernatorial candidate Tom Foley says he thinks the real issue isn’t the trains and buses, but highway congestion. Yet, he offers no solutions, saying only “we’ll figure it out.” Really?
Tom, if there were easy answers, they’d have been implemented by now. Look ... this is really a matter of supply and demand: Too much demand (highway traffic) and not enough supply (spaces on those roads). I think the solution is in managing the demand. But Foley says it’s a “supply side” issue.
