An interesting comparison between the transportation systems in two countries.

Not to suggest that Germany is the best example out there, but take a good look at the cost differential. Even with much higher gasoline costs, Germans spend far less as a percentage of their incomes, as well as considerably fewer tax dollars on transportation compared to their US bretheren.

Another thing to note is the safety factor (which in Canada with medical care paid for by the state also impacts our tax bill quite substantially).

Conclusion - those who believe that a car-dominant transportation system is more cost-effective than a multi-modal one need to have their heads checked.
