Improving the United States public transportation system by the day
Welcome to Mass Traveler
Hi, my name is Bobbi K Wells. I am a graduate student at Georgia Institute of Technology Atlanta, GA, and welcome to my website.
One of the reasons why I have decided to launch the MassTraveler site is the devastating state of our public transportation.
I want to discover new ways, and offer solutions that will improve our lives.
Three Best Ways To Reduce Emissions In Us
Encourage people to use alternatives – when possible, walk or ride a bike to avoid emission. Of course, we don’t usually live and work in the same town or place, so we need to use some transportation. But, if you are going grocery shopping, or having a drink with your friends, take a walk, instead of using your car.
Use fuel efficient vehicles – this rule doesn’t apply only to car owners, but also to public transportation forms. But, while we still don’t have electric buses, we have electric cars. All vehicles have the estimated miles –per – gallon rating. And while electric cars have a carbon emission, it can be compared with regular ones.
Driving style – speeding and unnecessary acceleration decreases mileage by up to 33%. In this case, you are wasting your money and gas and increasing carbon emission. Don’t use speeding as an excuse that you are late, leave on time and avoid leaving a carbon footprint.
Interested In Getting Involved?
Create new bus stops
these should be bus shelters where people that meet all safety criteria and encourage community members to use the public transportation system. The new bus stops should be places where people want to come back and tell other passengers about their experiences.
New ticketing system
it should help identify new riders without making delays or creating a crowd. A couple of seconds might seem like a meaningless time gap, but when you multiply this with the number of passengers, it can create a significant delay, which results in unsatisfied and frustrated riders.
the only way of reducing carbon emission is either taking a walk or riding a bike. Our program is designed to encourage people to avoid cars, or public transportation whenever it’s possible. In this case, you are preserving our environment and creating a better future for our kids.
Three Types Of Transportation In The Us
Trains And Subways
Almost every major city in the US feature trains and business and they are a cheap way to travel around. They have their system, and this is one of the most common ways to get around. Additionally, trains will help you go throughout the USA.
If you are living in a city, the buses will likely be pretty expensive, which is a standard for large urban areas. However, if you live in the suburbs, don’t expect them to come frequently and better rely on some alternative methods. If we are talking about longer routes, then it can be quite cheap to travel.
Taxies can be extremely expensive for students, but they are good for the long routes or journeys that are either too far for walking or cycling. In the last couple of years, a couple of affordable companies appeared on the market, such as Uber, which make things easier than before.

Vaccines for the COVID-19 virus are now available. However, that doesn’t mean you should be lax about your health and safety while riding public transportation.

In a previous post way back in February, 2020, we’ve talked about how legislation legalizing the use of e-scooters was vetoed. Well, what a difference a year makes! Thanks to a push from industry groups and advocates in April 2020 e-scooters and e-bikes were legalized at the city level. Now it’s up to the localities […]
The United States National Highway System (NHS) is an impressive network of road, byways, and interstates that allow people and goods to travel just about anywhere they need to go in North America. Impressive though it is – our national system is being pushed beyond it’s limits these days creating bottle-necks, traffic delays, and colossal […]
Electric Cars. The solution to reducing emissions?
Marketed as a revolutionary step in transportation, forward thinking companies like Tesla have promised to help us overcome a carbon emission, but somehow manufacturers neglected one major problem, charging station and battery life.
However, no one can negate the success of Elon Musk and its claims that he will stop the climate changes with his revolutionary invention, the Tesla car.
So far, people who have switched to Tesla have experienced positive benefits of this form of transportation and Musk claims he will produce cars with zero emission and improve the condition of our planet.
