- more and smaller vehicles running in town with larger feeders from outlying areas.
- study places like DC or NYC.
- charge for buses to help pay for itself, take that money and put it into energy efficiency measures and rebates.
- shift away from infrastructure oriented solutions. New infrastructure is a priority, of course, but I'd like to see short term, visible, and inexpensive solutions that can build momentum - the "Curritiba" approach.
- Develop a public transportation system that is accessible to everyone, connects with other local systems, and is convenient
- A plan to get county officials to trade in their government-issued sport-utility vehicles?
- wide outer lanes, no bike lanes,
- equal rights and responsibilities for all.

- A connection between Umstead and Carrboro.
- Redesign of East Franklin to accomodate bicyclists. One solution would be to repaint it into two wide outer lanes and a center turn lane.
- Longer-term need some form of electric transportation or alternative powered
"Catenary" type of system Electric buses or trolleys
- Local strategic petroleum reserve at old airport tanks
- Purchase bigger tanks (and store somewhere other than a flood plain)
- Plug-in hybrid fleets charged at night
Will go into full production for several manufacturers Congress looking at more substantial tax credits Off-peak charging gets support from electric utilities
Ideas to Develop furtherEdit
- Working 4-10s
Encourage working 4-10’s where feasible
- telecommuting where feasible
- Turn off vehicles, do not leave them idling.
