Mass transit is the answer....
Yea, right. They can't even afford it in China, so what makes anyone think that it is affordable here on a mass scale?
Tang Liming, a researcher with Anbound, a Beijing-based consultancy firm, said: "Most subways in China are operating with deficits.
"Even subway Line 4 of Beijing, operated by Hong Kong Mass Transit Railway, needs a heavy subsidy from the municipal government," Tang said.
Note that these are operating deficits, much less paying back any of the capital costs.
