    “Claims People Move to Denver for Transit System”

    Actually I did in 2007. I was living in LA unable to afford a home and visited several cities to see where I should settle, among the positives Denver had going for it were ambitious transit plans, which I viewed as an indicator of a city with a bright future. It wasn’t the only reason I picked Denver but it was one of them.

    #4 provides another avenue to talk about designing pedestrian-oriented urban spaces. For the elderly, giving up the car keys probably wouldn’t feel like such a loss of independence if they could get where they needed to go without them. But if you live at the end of a cul-de-sac and see that you’ll need your kids just to take you to the grocery, then yeah, letting go of the car will be a lot harder to do.
