Friday Eye Candy: A Cartoon Explains the State of U.S. Public Transit
A cartoon by Josh Kramer and Dan Nott sets out to answer a popular question these days: Why is U.S. Public Transit Crumbling?
The story starts in New York City, where the subway system has recently set records for delays, and expands to the many other U.S. cities that have no subways at all.
Along the way, cartoon caricatures of Randal O'Toole, David King, the Koch Brothers, Benjamin Ross, and Alissa Walker make appearances. International points of comparison include Toronto, Vienna, Bogotá, and Medellin.
