Those who want to travail will be willing to pay the extra fee, no matter the cost. This will force the travelers who may have limited resources to use the public transportation provided by the island. With the amount of money that is projected from the ERP, they could change the infrastructure of the transportation department. Improvements could be made and I think everyone would be more appreciative of the system. This would also help in protecting the harbor from being touched for expansion of roads.
This essay is going to show how well has transportation already immersed into people’s daily lives and find out how government is trying to reduce the problem caused. Not only helping us to save time, transports can also help a country to develop in economy more rapidly and exchange culture among countries.

The activity of bike riding has become more common as a use of transportation, most individuals are in favor of bikes becoming a primary source for travel; however, there are some individuals who disagree with bicycles being the new way of transporting from place to place. In a statement supporting the argument of pro-bike riding, the President of the League of American Bicyclists, Andy Clarke, mentions that “there are so many reasons more people are riding, from improving their health to protecting the environment,” she also adds “especially in tough economic times, bicycling can also be an economic catalyst, keeping billions of dollars in the pockets of American families.” In addition, more than 80 percent of Americans support maintaining or increasing federal funding for biking, which makes it seem as if Ms. Clarke’s opinion on the topic is in agreement with the majority of the nation. On the contrary, some people may argue that bikes do have negative impacts on the environment, particularly those associated with their production and disposal. In my opinion, bike riding is a healthy, economically-efficient, and environmentally beneficial mode of transportation. Bicycling has been found to reduce obesity since this activity requires the use of the entire body it allows people to build strength in a holistic manner and maintain a healthy state.
Municipalities are better positioned and have a wider scope to provide services to their constituents in order to ensure quality of service that does not erode accountability and transparency, or drive the municipality deeper into debt. The new public management states that, “cities are growing more and more like corporations referring to citizens as customers in the sense that they are providing product or goods (services) to the customer (taxpayers).” This had led to an increased demand for better quality at the lowest cost to the taxpayer. When looking at cost saving and alternative delivery municipalities must make a hard decision when choosing to contract out essential services. An exampl... ... middle of paper ... ...

Commuting is very important to everyone who uses public transportation. Due to the existence of various modes of transportation, the accessibility of establishments became faster and more convenient. However, there is a number of transportation modes that are inconvenient to some commuters; thus it needs to be developed further in order to make these modes useful to everyone. The development of the transportation will not only be beneficial to the commuters but also to the economy as a whole. As said, transportation is very important as this will be the tool in order to bring one person from one place to another.
Without a public transportation system, most people would have to find alternative ways to go to work like calling a taxi or an uber which would increase the amount of pollution(especially in states like California, Texas, and New York). With so many people trying to get to work, it would be beneficial if most states had a decent highway system but they cannot afford one due to other monetary problems dealing with immigration. An example of a common economic problem is that public schools have been underfunded compared to private schools. Most of the public schools include the majority of minorities and aren’t provided with equal quality education like private schools which can lead to educational inequality. These unaddressed issues can then lead to the increase of distrust of politicians and the government which then results in an unproductive and ineffective government.
Ways of Reducing Traffic Congestion In Northern Virginia Traffic involves vehicles moving on a road or public highway. Virginia’s average commute time to work was 28 minutes in 2012, which was the sixth highest in that nation. Traffic has always been an issue; with an increase of population traffic has to be eliminated, by people using public transportation, elimination of toll lanes, creations of multiple divided high way lanes, and finally increased speed limit to help traffic flow. Washington D.C. in the nation suffers from the worst traffic congestion, whereby the drivers spend more than 3 days out of every 365 caught in traffic. According to Virginia Transportation Secretary Sean T. Connaughton (City, green, 2014, N.P.).
From the data shown on the image, we could clearly see that: in 1953, the population in Beijing is about 2.768 millions, but in shortly sixty years, which increase average more than ten percent per year, and has finally become twenty one million now. (World Population Statistics, 2013). Overpopulation is a double-edged sword, it brings different positives and negatives. More out-providences people come in, which means more worker and labor force, which could help the local economy rapidly increased in a short time period. Anyhow, those labor forces may produce more products and bring more money for the city.
However, these increases give some impacts on economy and it is reported that in 2010, 52 million Chinese people travelled abroad” (Lixia, 2011). For another thing, tourism industry either can increase people's income and the rate of employment. “As David Cameron says in Barnett (2010), if the UK tourism industry can attract 0.5% more international tourists, this could generate 50,000 new jobs for local citizens”. “Thus, it is obvious that tourism directly increase the employment rate because those industries like accommodation, tour, travel operations and factories manufacturing can provide large numbers of employment opportunities for the local people” (Nworisara, 2011). These business operations invisibly generate large revenue to the government.
In tourism industry, transportation takes a central position and the development of transport system has result a major expansion in tourism industry. Transport system is important for contribution to the national economy is very often held up as an end in itself. Transports consider as public utility and it is important element for the stability of the economy. All kind of transport such as rail, road, water and air has a high tourist demand for many transport companies not only for human but for goods also. Tourist also will consider the transport charge as their expenditure and therefore it is important for the transport companies to limiting the expenditure of the tourist trade.
