Skechers Go Walk 3
What an apt symbol air (and car) travel is of the frantic rush of society today! Oh, for the wisdom to slow down and change direction! Just look at Highway 401: three lanes of traffic all day long, nine out of 10 cars with only one person hauling all Vans Green Black
a major culprit, isn't it time to change both the way we travel, and how much of it we do?
cases, VIA provides a virtual "two for one" deal, (less so if you include a private roomette with bathroom). But what would six days at a respectable hotel cost?
that metal back and forth. If we were to eliminate rather than add a lane, public transport would mushroom. Everyone would benefit in more ways than one. We use the car because it is there, because it is supremely convenient.
This trip was sheer luxury, without the obscene waste of everything in our major hotels. For example, we were treated to 18 gourmet meals served on linen, with sparkling wine and hors d'oeuvres in the scenic dome car before dinner. Many buy 30 day passes to go wherever they wish for a month. More and more people make their holiday the trip itself. One said the best trip ever was Skechers Go Walk 3 to Churchill on Hudson Bay!
By comparison, air travel is, quite frankly, sardine treatment. I see nothing to recommend it. Nothing other than hurry and worry.
Recently three of us rented a car on a "weekend special" to travel to Ottawa rather than pay for three VIA tickets. It turns out that the train would have cost us at least $50 less! The secret: VIA's two for one bargain, ordering five days ahead, and, for us, seniors rates. Good deals.
speed rail travel would 'pay for itself'
And cost? Taxis, buses, trains, rentals could never match the cost of owning a car. All that's required is an ounce of foresight, and an end to our aversion for coughing up on the spot.

I agree with Mr. Christie that studies are little more than an excuse to do nothing. But with climate change no longer just a theory, and travel Vans High Cut For Girls
Last year, knowing that every air passenger on average consumes the equivalent of a full year of driving a car, I decided to give up all but mandatory air travel. in late November, I decided to book a return ticket on VIA Rail's "Canadian".
And it would be a lot better if the government gave public transit anything like the support it gives to our highly polluting roads and airports. Mr. Christie denigrates Europe's enviable rail system, as if it were only for the rich. Quite the reverse.
I suggest that the cost of high speed rail from Quebec to Windsor would pay for itself in short order.
Isn't it time to shed our addiction to convenience? If my car hadn't died recently, I'd be using it. But I'm finding walking and biking downright invigorating. I'm on the verge of going carless permanently.
The price looked downright prohibitive . about twice that of air travel; that is, until I took note of a few things:
