My latest brainstorm: conservative Republican suburbanites will soon start advocating for trains. Whaddya think?
Suburbs are in decline, except for suburbs with train stops. That according to a study by Robert Lang, professor of urban affairs at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas (USA Today, June 28, 2012).
He studied 76 suburbs and found that those with rail lines gained more people. Overall, suburbs are predicted to decline. And Lang then predicts what NineShift predicted 10 years ago, that suburbs will grow if they have mass transit within walking distance, and they will "grow up around station stops." (Note, grow Up, not out).
So, will conservative Republican suburbanites start advocating for trains? Tell us your thoughts.
