Should governments spend more money on improving roads and highways, or should governments spend more money on public transportation? When
Should governments spend more money on improving roads and highways, or should governments spend more money on public transportation? When this question is placed in front of me, I find I am really in a dilemma. After pondering it from several aspects, personally, I think governments should spend more money on improving public transportation.
The first reason for my propensity for improving public transportation is that it is the most important form of transportation in the city.. By public transportation system, people can reach any place easily. Maybe a car can also carry them there, but do not forget there are still many people who do not have a car. Children can not drive, without their parents’ help, public transportation is the only way they can rely on.
Another reason that I prefer to public transportation is that developing it saves money and is more efficient. Compared with the expenditure on improving roads and highways, developing public transportation needs less money. While the city grows bigger and bigger today, a well developed public transportation system helps people save the time that they spend on way.
Finally, public transportation encourages a sense of community. Although cars bring people a lot of convenience, they isolate people from others. Public transportation is also convenient, besides, it bring people together. People can know more about each other in this way and even make new friends.
From what we discussed above, developing public transportation is more beneficial. So I think I must support that governments should spend more money on public transportation.
