Fascinating and totally missed by the text on Urban Transportation that we'll be using in the class I'm taking in the fall semester (Hanson/Giuliano, 3rd Ed). :-) I'm not into this type of qualitative study, but it would be interesting to see if there is a correlation between reduced driving in this cohort with 1) intensively-scheduled childhood activities (with Mom-o-bus transportation) and/or 2) constant watching of video programs inside those Mom-o-buses. Seems to me that being driven everywhere (and never having to deal with the movement and storage of the vehicle) combined with learning that there are better things to do while being transported is *excellent* training for future transit patrons. Might be fun to see if kids that were chauffeured around watching TV are the ones that aren't driving now.
