Detroit, the heartland of the U.S. auto industry, is realizing it can no longer rely so heavily on cars. The city had been planning a light-rail system for over 4 years to connect the pockets of urban and suburban development that have created massive job sprawl. Unfortunately, the city has recently decided to axe the project. Still, not all is lost. Detroit is now looking into transferring some of the funding from the proposed light rail system into a new Bus Rapid Transit System (BRT).
