Essay 156 Topic 19 Should government spend money on highways or public transportation?
Should governments spend more money on improving roads and highways, or should governments spend more money on public transportation? When this question is placed in front of me, I find I am really in a dilemma. After pondering it from several aspects, personally, I think governments should spend more money on improving public transportation.


The first reason for my propensity for improving public transportation is that it is the most important form of transportation in the city. . By public transportation system, people can reach any place easily. Maybe a car can also carry them there, but do not forget there are still many people who do not have a car. Children cannot drive, without their parents’ help, public transportation is the only way they can rely on.
Another reason that I prefer to public transportation is that developing it saves money and is more efficient. Compared with the expenditure on improving roads and highways, developing public transportation needs less money. While the city grows bigger and bigger today, a well developed public transportation system helps people save the time that they spend on way.
Finally, public transportation encourages a sense of community. Although cars bring people a lot of convenience, they isolate people from others. Public transportation is also convenient, besides, it bring people together. People can know more about each other in this way and even make new friends.
From what we discussed above, developing public transportation is more beneficial. So I think I must support that governments should spend more money on public transportation.
Essay 157 Topic 19 Should government spend money on highways or public transportation?
Transportation is one of the major fields that governments need to invest. When some one thinks that the governments should spend more money on improving roads and highways, I strongly suggest that more money be invested on improving public transportation.
Nevertheless, I do admit that money spent on roads and highways will benefit a lot. For those people who have cars, traveling will be easier and more convenient, since they will have more choices and it will take less time on the roads. Even public transportation will benefit from it since buses can utilize these roads and highways too.
However, what about those people who do not own a car? Definitely they rely on the public transportation and more investment on roads and highways will not directly do them good. What they really need is better public transportation systems, which in most cities are over-crowded and need more money.
Furthermore, from the point of view of environmental protection, investing more money on public transportation is better than on roads and highways. In the latter case, more people will be encouraged to buy cars and there will be more air pollution and noises. On the contrary, a better public transportation system will produce less pollution. When more people are attracted to the public transportation, provided it is better than it is today due to enough funds, the pollution will be reduced even further.
In conclusion, although I do not deny the benefits of better roads and highways, I think it is better for governments to spend more money on public transportation, since it will do good to us in the foreseeable future and in a long term.
Essay 158 Topic 19 Should government spend money on highways or public transportation?
Whether governments should spend more money on improving roads and highways or on improving public transportation is maybe one of the most important topics people are arguing about nowadays. When I am asked about this question, I will give my answer, basing on some reasons and details listed below.
Public transportation, as named, is a transportation system for the whole society of a country. It is efficient, when used in a country with high population density, such as China. The number of population is 1. 3 billion here. When every family occupied its own cars, you can imagine what a jam roads will be.
On the other hand, public transportation is economical. A bus with 40 passengers in it consumes mush less gasoline than 40 cars do in all. Of course, with less gas being used, less pollution will be made.
From the advantages I listed above, you may prefer to let our governments pay money on public transportation, but you must know that there are a lot of countries in this world with low population densities. To them, buses, trains and subways are always empty, because it is not convenient for passengers to get to the stations. Even though someone live near a station, they have to wait for a bus several hours, because bus companies do not want to provide a big bus for only several passenger without profit.
From the reasons and details above, we may safely get the conclusion that whether governments should spend more money on improving public transportation or on improving roads and highways depends on the population density in those countries.
Essay 159 Topic 19 Should government spend money on highways or public transportation?
Roadways have always been the hallmark of any great civilization. The Indus Valley, Mesopotamian, Roman and many other great civilizations have found a place in the
history books because of their efficient roadways which helped in mass movement of goods and people. These civilizations are long gone but they have left behind their mark to the future generations. Roadways and later highways have developed significantly since then. They are an integral part of any country, district, town or any other place for that matter. Public transport too is increasingly important and is a great service to the masses but it is not as necessary for a government with a limited budget to spend as much money on public transport as it does on roadways and highways as they are not nearly as important as roadways.
Public Transport would not exist if not for a proper and efficient structure of roadways and highways. If not for roadways people in many areas would be immobile and unable to reach other place or even find other locations. This would result in great economic and cultural losses as people will not be able to travel for tourism, business, emergencies and other purposes. With these losses there pressure on the government due to mass unrest among the public. Public transport cannot be the government’s response as there will be vehicles but no basic infrastructure that is roads for the vehicles to travel on. Hence the conclusion must be that development of roadways and highways as a priority should be higher than that of the public transport system.
Essay 160 Topic 19 Should government spend money on highways or public transportation?
Should governments spend more money on improving roads and highways or on improving public transportation? It is a hard decision to governments when they have only limited money to allocate. To my opinion, the better way is to improve public transportation for it carries more advantages than the other one.
The first and foremost, improving public transportation provides more convenience in transportation and, in turn, facilities cutting the number of private transportation vehicles, so as to reduce the air pollution. It is well know that the gas emitted from the cars is the major reason to cause acid rain and green-house effect, which threat our normal life more and more. Protecting the environment is one important role for governments.
The other advantage of improving public transportation is to release the traffic congestion, which has been a serious problem in our daily life, especially to people who live in big cities. We spend too more time on the way to work and go back home. The decrease of private vehicles is an effective way to solve this problem. On the other hand, improving roads and highway is also helpful to solve the problem. However, if the public transportation is not improved, the dramatically increasing in private cars will comprise the advantage of more roads and highways.
The last but not the least, people prefer public transportation to private cars. Using public transportation make people relax and enjoy the trip. The reason why people use private vehicles is that, sometime, the public transportation is not contentious enough comparing to the private vehicles. If the public transportation is improved, more people will shift to public transportation accordingly.
In short, improving public transportation is the better way to effectively solve the problems of pollution and traffic jam than improving roads and highways. Governments should spend more money on public transportation instead of roads and highways.
Essay 161 Topic 19 Should government spend money on highways or public transportation?
The answer to this statement depends on your own experience and where you live. In my point of view, spending more money on improving roads and highways is as important as, if not more important than, spending more money on improving public transportation. It is sagacious to develop roads and highways. Among countless factors that influence the choice, these are three conspicuous aspects as follows.
The main reason for my propensity for spending more money on improving roads and highways is that roads and highways is the most efficient way to solve the transportation problem of the city. I live in the old city in china where the roads in the city are narrow and rugged. There are traffic jams everywhere and almost each road has become one-way road. Every commuter is extremely tired of that traffic. Though public buses are very crowded during rush hours, increasing buses can hardly help. However improving roads and developing highways around the city actually expands the city space and many cars and vehicles can make a detour to avoid the heavy traffic within the city in the rush hours. That way can alleviate the traffic of city and give us opportunity to rebuild the city’s transportation.
Another reason can be seen by every one is that improving roads and highways can enhance the connection of our city to outside. If we have a good network of roads and highways, the products of your city are easier to sent out and merchandise from other cities are easier to bring here. More national or international conferences will hold here and more tourists like to visit here. So economy of our city will be prosperous and flourishing and living qualities of people will be increased.
Furthermore, there are too many people crowded in this old city but people are afraid to move out because of the difficult traffic. Too many people gathered inside the city destroy many beautiful things that we have built and cause a lot of problems. If we develop roads and highways out round the city people would like to move out to live in suburban and then not only the traffic is improved within the city but also the air is much fresher within city.
In short, improving roads and highways not only can solve the transportation problem but also increasing the economy of the city and improve living qualities of people of the city. So the government should spend more money on improving roads and highways.

Essay 164 Topic 19 how to improve transportation
If you live in such a big city—Beijing——– as I do, with so terrible a traffic situation, you
will not be surprised of involving in a heated debate of whether the government should spend more money on improving roads and highways, or should they put money on public transportation improvement. However, as far as I am concerned, this is not a conflict issue, that governments should combine the efficacies of both the two means in order to ameliorate the traffic status at present. Improving roads and highways, which is a fact that everyone knows, can bring about various advantages. First of all, to construct more roads and highways means that more vehicles, in other words, more people, could travel to their destinations more convenient and faster. People now live in the suburb of Beijing but work in the center, are good case in point, whose homes are only several kilometers from downtown, ironically have to rent a house near their work places because of it will take them hours to go home for the bad condition of the roads and the lack of highways. On the other hand, for the government, as a matter of fact, a high input-output ratio is desirable, and the highways which are profitable are capable of prospering the economy, and indeed, raise the national revenue. Is this attractive to any government? Improving public transportation such as buses, trains, subways, which are involved in people’s everyday life, is also of great significance, especially for those who do not have personal transportations and have to choose either buses or subways to go to work or go school, and more over, for such a big city as Beijing that has an enormous population. Since it is the government’s responsibility to improve the public facilities including public transportation as to make its people leading a better life, money should also be put on this aspect. Taking into account all the factors mentioned above and combining with the character of the city I am now living, I perceive that the government should put more money on improving roads and highways, meanwhile, use the income of them to develop my city’s public transportation as well.
