Age Of The Megalopolis

To survive in the 21st century, major metro areas work together to plan their transportation and economic strategies.

"Over 200 million people, two-thirds the United States' population, already live in 10 megapolitan regions...And the "mega's" are gaining population more rapidly than the U.S. as a whole...Suburbs at the fringe of existing metro regions have been racing toward one another. Once-distant cities have been transformed into galaxies and corridors of linked urban space, with accelerated movements of people and goods among them."
