Recently, I have been wondering. How does one determine when something is a local transportation policy issue and when it is a global or tourism transportation policy issue? Can that distinction still be meaningfully made?
Here's an example of the multiple layers of impact that inaccessible transportation has on residents in the UK -- and the implications for tourism.
In my personal experience the same issues meant that I could not travel independently (read, "spend my tourist dollars locally") when I was last in Abergenny, Wales; Oxford, London, or the Cotswalds, England.
