Highways vs. Public Transportation

New numbers from the American Public Transportation Association say that public transportation use rose 3.5 percent in the past year, the highest level in more than four decades. Americans also drove 2.7 trillion miles last year, the same amount as in 1999. Linda Wertheimer speaks with James Hughes about the figures and what they mean for public transportation. Hughes is the dean of the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers University.
