The car company's took care of public transportation when cars started coming around. I heard one of their tactics was buy up trolley car company's and shut them all down. people wee forced to buy cars. The early car companies, steel and rubber companies, they all benefitted. I guess the crooked politicians dipped their beaks in that water too... And today, we are all slaves to the car. Public transportation, trolleys, busses, they were never developed as they were in other countries.
