As a professional jazz musician, i travel to many cities in many countries, and almost all major cities have a great subway system. I strongly think that Pittsburgh could benefit from this. It would help decrease surface road congestion, create jobs in the design and co struction and running of the system, and it could involve local artists and designers and engineers, to give it a truly "Pittsburgh" flavor. In addition, subways create less air pollution and greenhouse gasses than busses do, so it would improve the quality of the air.

Great idea Mr. Seiger, true this could help. But if I can submit my idea in partner with that what if I'm handicapped I don't have time for traffic. Wouldn't a system that allowed them to get to the subway quickly help?
