Rather than a car, how about a health club membership?
Now even driving causes obesity?
So, does that mean we should subsidize light rail boondoggles to help curtail obesity?
Thankfully, Peter Gordon asks that always knotty question: "At what cost?" After analyzing the data, he concludes:
"Cynics started doing the math many years ago and found that buying rail transit users a car would be far cheaper [than public subsidies of inefficient light rail systems]. But that would never fly with the smart set."
"So consider the 2010 update which suggests that buying them a bus pass plus health club membership is the way to go. The various "cash-strapped" governments would save money."
