A Conversation for Columbus, Ohio, USA

Public Transport

The guide describes public transport in Columbus as "adequate", but omits to mention that this is a peculiar sense of the word, which actually means "adequate if you have an SUV or other large vehicle, or if you are in the pay of an integalactic trucking company, or if you want to travel up and down one of the few roads that have regular buses". It is the largest US city without a passenger train station, though that doesn't stop it from being full of trains, most of them hooting their horns every time they come to a crossing, apparently
from sheer joy of passing through, though some suspect that they are
exploiting a Vogon tax break.

Gasoline approaching $4/Gal. is added motivation.
