Double Down on Transit!

Kentucky’s Lt. Governor Dan Mongiardo wants a monorail in Louisville and if Kentuckians send him to the U.S. Senate, he’ll try to get it. After all, they’ve built monorails in Brockway, Ogdenville and North Haverbrook and by gum it put them on the map.

His press release indicates Mongiardo is ready to get serious about public transportation:

A recent study by the American Transportation Association found that for every dollar invested in public transportation creates four dollars in economic benefits.

Holy crud! If that’s true, can we just spend all of the U.S. budget on mass transit? We’ll all be rich! Let’s go!
