China’s Subway Boom

Friday, March 27th, 2009

Fifteen Chinese cities are building subway lines according to the New York Times.

Money quote: “Nobody is building like they are,” said Shomik Mehndiratta, a World Bank specialist in urban transport. “The center of construction is really China.”

How many U.S. cities are doing the same? And, by the way, how much of the U.S. “stimulus” is going to subways?
