A good government is believed to pay attention to their people’s needs. A lot of things can be done to improve their lives, one of which is the public transportation which is badly in need by all people. In my opinion, governments should spend more money on improving public transportation such as buses, trains, and subways.
Firstly, buses or trains which are identical with a long queue and waiting, dirtiness, and for second-class people should be given a serious attention by improving the facilities and services. Public transportation having been enhanced, some benefits can, of course, be obtained. Then people are automatically willing to make use of buses or trains.
Second of all, a better environment is likely to happen when people are more interested in using public transportation than private cars. As we know, carbon dioxide is one of the gases that can cause Green House problems leading to Global Warming. . So, if public transportation is preferable to people, cars on the road became fewer. This means reducing level of carbon dioxide in the world. Lastly, accidents which frequently claim people‘s lives can be prevented when a number of car decreased. If traffic is less, road damage can at least be minimized, so allocated money for repairing roads can be saved as well.
All in all, if a city has a good network of transportation, people don’t need to drive their own cars and road damage can be avoided. The Government will save their money so they can easily spend money to upgrade public transportation. A country with well-organised transport system is reflected in a good and responsible government.
