Evolution of Public Transportation Historic Film Collection on DVD Public transportation and the development of the arteries of travel is probably something that you never think about - except when you get stuck in a traffic jam, especially one caused by one of those construction projects that just never seems to finish. You also probably never give any though to the ease with which we can travel from city to city or state to state. But it wasn't always this way. The evolution of transportation was a long and bumpy road - filled with false starts and the need to really convince people of the need of building our super-connected modern society with its super highways and other nationwide traffic networks. The eight films in this collection follow the evolution of the modern traffic system and interestingly highlight many of the congestion related problems we all experience in our daily lives. Arteries of York City (1941) This film explains the traffic planning for all the roads leading into and out of York City and shows the efforts that are being taken to plan for future transportation and infrastructure needs so the city could keep growing and being a vibrant center of life and business.
