The video below documents the struggles of a suburban Phoenix, AZ family as they try to cope with the high cost of transportation and a lack of alternatives to driving in their autocentric neighborhood. It’s amazing (and sad) to watch this family struggle to get by with just one operable vehicle and no public transit in sight. I have a feeling that a lot of households in the Miami area are experiencing similar difficulties as the Brosso family because they too live in communities that lack the presence of other quality transportation options beside motor vehicles.

    Ditto. I go to Barry University and am close enough to bike, but recent crime rates have deterred me from biking to campus. Even with my very short commute my bill has gone up this semester. Plus, I live very close to the train tracks that run close to biscayne, Id kill for a transit connection that goes to Aventura Mall or Dwn Town Miami.
