Approximately 34.9 million Americans will travel 50 miles or more from
home during the Memorial Day weekend, according to leisure travel
organization AAA. That represents a slight increase of 0.2 percent — or
100,000 people — from the 2010 holiday.
It is very difficult to have uncontrolled growth and a cost-efficient and effective transit system.
