Article on Portland's public transit system, commenting on the limitations of the system. Because public transportation has not been a critical part of the development process, many local government policies actually encourage sprawl and dependence on automobiles. Kevin Donoghue, a graduate student at the Muskie Institute for Public Service, notes that abundant affordable parking and poor walking conditions in Portland discourage use of public transit.

With comments by Elizabeth Trice, a member of the Portland Alliance of Transportation and Housing; Carey Kish, manager of Go Maine; and public transit riders Amy Emmons and Myranda Gowan.
