Is this the Future of Green Transportation

The innovative Park and Ryde Program has been cancelled. While introduced to great fanfare as a sustainable initiative to reduce traffic, the program has been plagued with confusion and inefficiencies from the start.

Residents seemed more than willing to carpool to Ryde and park their vehicle but were disappointed to find that there was no infrastructure in place to transport them to their place of work or worship once they arrived.

Terrence Midgely of Newport says that he drove all the way from Newport to Ryde on several occasions only to return back to Newport in frustration. "I reckon I now drove more than ten times further to get to work than I did before and was late for the pancake races on Sunday but if that's what it takes to stop global warming and save the polar bears I'm all for it."

David Pugh admits that there were some difficulties that cropped up as the new program was being rolled out but is optimistic that the initiative is of great value long term and hopes it can be reinstated.

While some say that a typo was at fault, Pugh has commissioned a study by Pugh Traffic Engineering Consultants who are proposing a system of Bullet Trains from Ryde to outlying communities and hamlets.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
