Something to Emulate
by Mike Tolochko
On my way to the UNESCO office building for the annual meeting of NGOs at the United Nations, I travelled using the suburban RER SNF trains and then the Metro. Now that is a public system worth copying.
It is fast, clean and always ON TIME. Every; that is every station as a clock reporting when the next train arrives. And it is an old system, that has ben signficantly upgraded.
US politcians should be learning about and reporting on this system as a building block for energy savings. Maybe they think the oil and auto lobby won't like them for doing so. That is a shame.
Sarkowy will have a hard time dismantling this system. This would really cause another revolution if he tries.
