Excerpt from A Study and Review of the Problem of Passenger Transportation in Philadelphia by an Unified System of Lines: An Analysis of the Plans Proposed for Its Solution With Suggested Methods for Their Improvement
An engineer's work is principally constructive. His aim should not be the de struction of either physical or financial property, but its conservation.
This is an engineer's report on a transportation problem, an experiment. Unique in many features, and is intended to give such facts, advice and technical data as the public may need in order to understand the fundamental difficulties inherent in an enterprise which even its most enthusiastic advocates admit must burden for years to come either the taxpayer or the car rider, as may later be determined.
It aims to point out some fallacies popularly believed, to make some suggestions that should be helpful, to bring out such facts as have not heretofore been generally known - or, if known, not appreciated as to their importance - and to serve the people and the best-interests of the entire City of Philadelphia. In its preparation I have given much study as to how the burdens and benefits which the lines 'will produce should be distributed, and suggestions are herein presented.
While in this report' a program of construction is advised which calls for the authorization at this time of only I feel that the determination of the amount that shall be authorized is a matter that rests entirely with the citizens and their representatives in City Councils.
