To plan for more than cars alone

For most people, when you talk transportation you are pondering things big, expensive and fast. It’s much more interesting to ponder a $90 million interchange than sidewalks on Wenatchee Avenue, or a bridge over the Columbia than a bike lane on First Street.

We’re human beings, after all, and we like to spend time with people just like us, and we want other people to do things that help us do the things we like to do. So when it comes to decisions on how to get from place to place, we are nearly always talking about roads for cars and trucks, and how to make them bigger, faster, and pricey. Public policy in this regard naturally caters to automobiles and their ease of use, which makes good sense, because that’s what most of us use in our travels.
