Human transportation in the US is an unfair apartheid system

gizmodo : "There’s plenty of talk about how housing has become dramatically less affordable in the US, but hardly anyone talks about the transportation crisis, which is the direct result of failing to build enough places for people to live. Because cities have become too expensive, the transit-dependent have been forced to move further and further away. These are the Americans without a smartphone in their hands, who don’t have a car at home, who might live below the poverty line. These are the people who are riding those buses for hours a day to get to their jobs or their school. These are people who would kill for a car that could finally give them some stability in their lives."
