Yes, you hit the issues on the nose.

As populations continue to grow, major urban areas must build up, increasing population density. The traditional urban sprawl is still attractive as people like green grass and fresh air and to escape noise, crime and other problems.

Rising energy costs favor short commutes. Rising population means unless we get effective mass transit, our urban centers will strangle in congestion, traffic, and a mass of highways.

Mass transit is the best solution. But how do you fund it? How do you make it attractive for people to use it?

These are not new issues, but they become increasingly imperative in many cities.
