Virus threatens future of already-struggling transportation systems

BOSTON — Before the pandemic, public transit users in cities around the country bonded over a slew of ills that plagued aging subway systems, from delays and breakdowns to the occasional derailment.

Now those systems are grappling with a new reality — drastically plummeting ridership and revenue caused by a stealthy virus that’s also sickening and killing transit workers.

With no clear predictions about when most riders will feel safe enough to return, public transportation networks from Boston to Washington to New York to Chicago are doing their best to hold on.

New York’s subway will halt its storied overnight service starting at 1 a.m. Wednesday to allow for additional cleaning and disinfecting of cars and stations. The stoppage has some people wondering if all-night service will ever resume in the cash-strapped system.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo pledged Tuesday that it will be back when the pandemic is over.

Research for the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) shows overall vehicle ownership increased 1% year-on-year at a time when new-vehicle sales have been curtailed apparently by concerns over the economic impact of Brexit.

Telecommuting Breaks Transportation, Pt. 2: Downforce

This multi-part series addresses core concepts in telecommuting’s impact on transportation; concepts which have gone largely dismissed by the very experts who fund, plan, and build our nation. For more, see Part 1.

Downforce

For as long as automobiles have existed, they’ve been racing. And while many dismiss the sport as some barbaric fascination with speed, racers have internalized a valuable lesson about sustainability which escapes many city leaders to this day.

Racing has always been a pursuit of speed, and at first, that was understood to be top speed — reaching a peak, so to speak. But commitment to this simplistic and seemingly superficial pursuit eventually yielded counterintuitive insights which
